Use of national flag, emblem in promotions banned

Use of national flag, emblem in promotions banned

The Ministry of Commerce banned individuals and businesses from using the Saudi Arabian flag in commercial promotions including publications, goods and products, brochures, special gifts and others.
The ministry clarified that the national flag contains the name of Allah, and the official state emblem of two swords and palm tree. The ban also covers pictures and names of Saudi leaders and officials.

The ministry explained that it has carried out inspection tours in markets in all regions of the Kingdom to control such violations, especially during festive occasions such as National Day. It also monitors e-shops.

Legal measures will be taken against those who violate the ban.

A circular was issued to businesses four years ago banning the use of the State's emblem of two swords and a palm tree in commercial transactions.

The Kingdom is scheduled to celebrate National Day next Friday.
