Riyadh Air livery unveiled:

Not to sure myself. At least its not the same "Eurowhite" livery that most airlines seem to go with these days, but the tail design seems pretty simple and uninteresting.

Sounds like they'll have another livery as well, so remains to be seen if this will be the standard livery with the yet to be unveiled being a special livery; this being a special livery with the standard one to be unveiled; or if they go down the Jet2 route of having a fairly even split between the two liveries.
There are quite a few airlines with multi colours, Saudi, Gulf Air. There are a few which are lacking i:e SAS, Lufthansa with Euro Blue
