US Embassy Riyadh Saudi Arabia: Half American Flag Half Saudi Flag – Other Countries Do It Too

Look what the U.S. State Department thinks appropriate for our U.S. Embassy’s Twitter avatar/profile in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia. The green portion on the icon below is a replica of the Saudi flag.

But there’s more to the story:

The truth is, numerous of our U.S. Embassies share our flag with the flag of the host country.


But…so, far I haven’t found a foreign embassy hosted in the U.S. using our flag as a part of their avatar. Not saying they’re not there, but I haven’t found them.
