Green with large Arabic script in the middle of the flag ; above it is a horizontally lying saber with its tip pointing towards the flagpole;

Meaning

Green is the traditional color of Islam. The Arabic inscription says "There is only one God. Muhammad is the prophet of God.". This profession of faith is called the Shahada. It is required by law that the text should traditionally read from right to left (on both sides of the flag!). The sword symbolizes the sword of Abd al Aziz ibn Saud (or Abd al Aziz ibn Sa'ud ), the founder and king of Saudi Arabia, who conquered large parts of Arabia in the early 20th century.
