Flag of the Kingdom of Morocco


The Morocco flag consists of a red part with a green pentagram or”Solomon’s seal”.

in 1915, the symbol was added to the flag to distinguish it from the flags of other Arab nations.

Green and red are the traditional colors of Islam and red have been on the Moroccan flag since the 16th century. Red has symbolized the blood relationship between the Prophet Muhammad and the king, but it is sometimes a symbol of the nation’s freedom.

History of the flag


The first version of the modern flag belonged to the Almohad dynasty in the 12th century. red is the background of the flag of the modern flag but in the middle of a 64-piece chessboard.

In traditional Islamic culture, the chessboard is a symbol for theological debate and the victory of Islamic reasoning over other dominant moral frameworks.

The Marinid dynasty, a Sunni Muslim sect of the Berber race, overthrew Almohad. It replaced the chess starboard with an octagonal star and a circle around the edges.

In 1666, the Alawite dynasty took over and still stands today as the current kingdom of Morocco.

The kingdom, which claims to be the descendants of the Prophet Muhammad, decided to remove all logos and hoist a simple traditional red flag for more than 400 years. Red indicates strength and courage.

Colonial law

In the early 20th century, Morocco fell victim to the colonial pressures of Spain and France with the Phase Treaty.

The “agreement” practically disintegrated the country – some parts were booked and occupied by Spain and others by France.

Nominally, the treaty did not deprive Morocco of its sovereignty, because Sultan Abdul Hafid was still the leader of the country, but in practice, he had no real power.

On November 17, 1915, the Kingdom of Morocco adopted the current flag as its national symbol. Although the colonial powers only allowed the flag to be displayed on its borders (and not at sea), it eventually became the flag of independence in 1955.

Colors


This flag consists of a red background. Red is one of the main colors of the Pan-Arab era and is with victory on the battlefield. It is a symbol of hardship, courage, strength, and bravery.

It reminds people of the Alawite dynasty (related to bravery), the Yemeni imams, and the sheriffs of Mecca. Both red and green have meanings in Islam. Green is the main color of Islam and represents paradise in the Quran.

However, in the flag, the color green symbolizes hope, wisdom, joy, peace, and love.

Moroccans are very patriotic. As a result, for them, the flag is a symbol of freedom and a reminder of the rich history of the country, its powerful dynasties, and independence.

Symbol


In the center of the Moroccan flag is a green pentagram. This symbol is a symbol of the five pillars of Islam: martyrs, alms, prayers, fasting, and Hajj.

The pentagram not only represents the religion and faith of the country but also the hope of the people and the relationship between God and the king.
For others, however, it is a symbol of the relationship between God and the nation.

The emblem is called the Seal of Solomon. Before 1915, this was a 6-pointed star.
