Saudi Arabia has announced that it is changing the color of its ceremonial carpets from the traditional red to lavender.
This move is designed to celebrate the nation’s identity
This is because lavender is associated with blossoming wildflowers that carpet the Kingdom’s desert landscapes in the spring.
It is also a symbol of Saudi generosity.
