Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia
Saudi Arabia. I actually don’t have too many problems with this one. But one question stands out. Why the sword? I think it’s a little uh… militant. Maybe in a culture where beheading isn’t a still-used form of capital punishment – but for Saudi Arabia, I think it’s too soon. I get a very stabby/slashy vibe from this one. The script reads: “There is no God but Allah and Muhammad is his messenger.” That’s fine and good. It’s even a very beautiful script, and the green is very pleasing. But Saudia Arabia’s oil-based economy is surely not green. Nor is its mostly desertified landscape. But I guess that’s neither here nor there. Anyhow, if they’re serious about being badass and having weaponry on their flag, I suggest something more modern, like Mozambique…
