of the Arabian Peninsula
Arabian Peninsula
, today especially those from the Persian Gulf
Persian Gulf
coast, are traditionally falconry experts; falcons (and hawks ) are seen as status symbols and one of the Arabs' favorite animals. Also the traditions and recorded history about the Quraysh
and Muhammad
claim a falcon had been used as clan symbol. Therefore, several variants of the Quraishi hawk were and are seen in the flags, coat of arms, seals and emblems of several Arab states until today. In that meaning, the Hawk
of Quraish is a rival to the so-called Eagle of Saladin .
