KENAPA BENDERA SAUDI TIDAK PERNAH DIKIBARKAN SETENGAH TIANG?

 

flag_of_saudi_arabia-svgKebanyakan orang mungkin sudah mengetahui bahwa bendera Saudi warnanya hijau dan tertulis kalimat syahadat. Karena adanya kalimat syahadat maka “tidak pantas” dikibarkan setengah tiang.

 

Larangan mengibarkan bendera Saudi setengah tiang ini ternyata ada dalam “The Basic Law of Governance” (hukum dasar pemerintahan Saudi Arabia). Saya sendiri juga baru mengetahui akan hal ini.

 

Lengkapnya di pasal ke 3 tertulis:

“The color of its National Fag is green, and the width of the flag is equal to two thirds of its length. An article written in the middle of the flag translated as “there is no god but Allah, Muhammad is Allah’s messenger” with a drawn sword underneath. THE FLAG CAN’T BE PUT AT HALF-MAST, and its related regulations shall be determined by the law”

 

Dengan jelas tertulis: THE FLAG CAN’T BE PUT AT HALF-MAST(bendera tidak boleh ditaruh/dikibarkan setengah tiang).

 

Ini sekedar info. Semoga bermanfaat.

 

Abu Zakariya Sutrisno. Riyadh, 6/3/1438H.
