Morocco's flag is crimson with a green five-pointed star in the center. The star, known as the Seal of Solomon, is an Islamic symbol, with the five points representing the five pillars of Islam. The color red is significant in Moroccan history because it denotes descent from the royal ‘Alawid dynasty and the ruling house's relationship with the Islamic prophet Muhammad through Fatimah, the wife of Ali, the fourth Muslim Caliph. The green star is thought to signify both the color of Islam and national unity.
Morocco's flag was officially approved on November 17, 1915, when Sultan Yusef issued a dhahir changing the national flag to a crimson field with a green interwoven pentangle. Since the 17th century, the color red has been associated with Morocco, and the country's earliest flags were simple red. When Morocco was under French and Spanish administration, the red flag with the seal was exclusively used interior because it was illegal to use at sea. It was restored as the national flag after independence was regained in 1955.
