Coat of Arms of Saudi Arabia

The Saudi Arabian coat of arms (Arabic: شعار السعودية) was adopted in 1950.[1] According to the Saudi Constitution[2] it consists of two crossed swords with a palm tree in the open upper space between the blades. Each of the swords represents the two houses which founded modern day Saudi Arabia, the House of Saud, and the House of Wahab.

The date palm tree represents vitality and growth. The crossed scimitars symbolize justice and strength rooted in faith.
