Saudi Arabia: Homage to the King

Many businesses in Saudi Arabia pay homage to the king and other royals by displaying huge images of their likenesses on buildings or vehicles.

This is something I simply cannot understand.

Hi Jerry - I guess it overtly show loyalty and respect for the king and his government. Connections (called "wasta") are very important here in Saudi so I'm guessing that a business owner might think that a display like this improves his personal wasta.

The banners are very big, which you'd expect.
