The Culture of Saudi Arabia

Saudi Arabia National Flag

Saudi Arabia National Flag

Saudi Arabia is a very conservative country with centuries-old attitudes and traditions, often derived from Arab tribal culture. This conservative tendency has been bolstered by the austerely puritanical Wahhabi form of Islam, which arose in the eighteenth century and now predominates in the country.

The many limitations on behavior and dress are strictly enforced both legally and socially. For example, alcoholic beverages are prohibited and there are no theatres or public exhibition of films.

I will explain the national flag of Saudi Arabia. The green background expresses Islam. It is written with Arabic script meaning: "God other than Allah is not. Muhammad is Allah's apostle." The white sword expresses the victory of Mecca.

I think it is important to get in touch with the culture of various countries with the soul of multiculturalism. I would like to visit Mecca and to carry out cultural experiences such as worship!!
