ABOUT THE DESIGN OF STARBUCKS RIYADH ICON MUG

Starbucks Riyadh Icon Mug front design features the Masmak.

The Masmak is a clay and mud-brick fort with four watch towers and thick walls, founded on stone blocks

lying in the center of Riyadh, in the old quarters. It was built around 1865 by the prince of Riyadh. This building played a major part in the kingdom’s history, as it was here that the recapture of Riyadh, led by Ibn Saud, occurred on January 14, 1902.
