Can anyone clue me in on how to tell the difference between UAE nationals, Kuwaitis, Saudis, Qataris, Bahrainis, etc just by looking at the agal, jetra etc?

Well I know Jordanian shemaghs (arab scarves) are red and white and Palestinian ones are black and white.

When I was in DXB I asked and they said, the Dubaians usually wear white headgear, the Saudis and Kuwaitis red and white. I don't know how far along the region that stretches, because the Libyans usually don't wear anything apart from a black caps that are about half the size of a fez, but aren't hard.
