Camels .. A link to the Kingdom's history and a source of pride for Saudis
The camel is a key component of Saudi heritage and history, due to its strong connection with the people of the Arabian Peninsula. It constitutes an important part of his adaptation to his environment and his resistance to the difficult environmental conditions. Human dependence on camels in everything he does has continued since the dawn of the Saudi State. It is the source of his power and his sustenance. It even participated in the trips of the founder of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, King Abdulaziz bin Abdurrahman Al Saud to unify the country under the banner of tawhid.
