When Abdulaziz Abdulrahman Al-Saud became the King of Nejd in 1902 he added a sword to his nation’s flag.
His nation was comprised of a number of nomadic tribal people known as Bedouins. They banished swords in their traditional “men’s sword dance” (ardh).
King Abdul Aziz unified the tribal nation into the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in 1932 with the sword becoming a symbol of the unified country.
The coat of arms for Saudi Arabia combined a palm tree above its traditional crossed swords.
