Morocco ISD Calling code is +212
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.
Morocco is a heady mix of cultures, religions, ancient traditions, and modern sensibilities. It conjures up images of mint tea and tagine, date plantations and minarets, labyrinthine medinas and pungent spice stalls.
One of the more liberal countries in North Africa, Morocco’s biggest drawing card is Marrakech, a giddying and grandiose city that Winston Churchill described as “simply the nicest place on Earth to spend an afternoon.” This sentiment rings true for many travellers today.
