Mecca-Cola is a cola-flavoured carbonated beverage, marketed as an alternative to U.S. brands such as Coca-Cola and Pepsi-Cola to “pro-Muslim” consumers. The product’s name contains the traditional Latin-alphabet transliteration of “Mecca”, the holiest city of Islam located in Saudi Arabia.
But now the name Mecca-Cola is refused registration as a trademark in the United Arab Emirates. The Supreme Court denied the company to sell a soft drink under this name. The court relied on a 1992 law that prohibits names a with religious significance to be trademarked.
Back to the original Coke it is! Or Pepsi of course.
