If youre going to technical, Big Ben isn't the official name for anything. It is merely a nickname in common usage. Common usage also calls the entire clock/tower, Big Ben.

It will be interesting to see if a nickname emerges for this clock/tower...

Big Ben is still Big Ben... This tower in Makkah I prefer to think of as "Big Bin".

According to latest pics, I think they'll just put a boring brown cladding instead of a banner

Wow, Jamil's photos are very nice. Really liking the green, too. It still seems like it's hard to grasp the scale of the complex (well aside from HUGE) unless you're right by it.
