I found a picture, where chief of Saudi Border Guard is interviewed, its flag can bee seen behind him. This is a yellow flag with Saudi flag in the canton, a blue horizontal stripe runs along the lower edge, and Border Guard emblem is placed in the fly.

National Guard

There is also the National Guard, which is a sort of Royal Guards-cum-Security Force, seperate from the regular army. I haven't seen a flag for any of these forces – that doesn't necessarily mean such flags don't exist though!
Miles Li, 10 July 2008

The National Guard is yet another Saudi paramilitary unit, and I have recently been told that there is now a Saudi Coast Guard as well, tasked with anti-smuggling, maritime safety, and other roles. However this is a new force which was only established in January of this year - Joe McMillan may know something about it. There was a brief news story several weeks ago on BBC in the Northeast and Cumbria which showed about a dozen Saudi Coast Guard personnel visiting the British Coastguard station and also the Royal National Lifeboat.

Other Military Flags?

I understand that there are at least two paramilitary police forces in the KSA, a Frontier Force and Gendarmerie, not to mention the Religious Police. Do these forces also have flags? I have recently been told that there is now a Saudi Coast Guard as well, tasked with anti-smuggling, maritime safety, and other roles. However this is a new force which was only established in January of this year.

Here's the flag 'in the cloth' at a joint Saudi-Pakistani exercise in 2006; I guess the flag on the right is the Pakistani Army flag.
Ian Sumner, 10 July 2008

The first illustration definitely shows a Saudi military flag, possibly a regimental or unit flag. The Guard.com site seems to be that of a private security company. The uniform looks more like that of a private outfit. We really do nead some Arabic-speaking members of the List!
