Flag of Morocco

Flag of Morocco

The Moroccan flag consists of a red leaf where a green pentagram or "Seal of Solomon" is placed. This symbol was added on the flag in 1915 in order to distinguish it from the flags of other Arabic nations. Green and red are traditional colors of Islam, and the red color has been present on the Moroccan flag since the 16th century. Red is supposed to symbolize the blood kinship between the Prophet Muhammad and the king, but sometimes it is interpreted as a symbol of freedom of the nation. Until 1956, Morocco was a French colony, but unlike other colonized nations, Morocco did not adopt the French tricolor flag and managed to retain its own flag during this period.
