History of the Moroccan Flag The use of the flag in Morocco as a symbol of the state dates way back to the Almoravide dynasty (1062-1125 ad). Prior to this time, white silk banners were often carried in battle, sometimes with Koranic inscriptions written on them. The Almoravides institutionalized this practice. They gave one banner to every unit of 100 soldiers. The two following dynasties (the Merinides and the Saadiens) continued the use of the White flag as the symbol of the State. The Alaouites (beginning in the 17th Century), which are the ruling dynasties, were the first to introduce the red flag. It was raised every morning and lowered every evening on the fortresses at Rabat and Sale. The green Sulayman star on the flag was introduced in 1912.
Etiquett of the Flag Due care and consideration must be taken to ensure that the Moroccan flag is always flown the correct way up A tattered or faded flag of Moroccan should be removed and replaced with a new flag The Moroccan flag should never be allowed to drag along the ground The National flag of Moroccan should never be flown above another national flag on the same staff as this would suggest superiority, or conversely, inferiority of one flag, or Nation, over another
