Morocco:

Whose flag is this?
 
The flag of Morocco
 
Red has considerable historic significance in Morocco, proclaiming the descent from royal Alaouite dynasty.
 
On November 17, 1915, Resident General Hubert Lyautey had Sultan Yusef sign a dhahir that made Morocco’s flag red with a green interlaced pentangle. The five points of the star stand for Love, Truth, Peace, Freedom, and Justice.
 
While Morocco was under French and Spanish control, the red flag with the seal in the centre remained in use, but only inland. Its use at sea was prohibited. When independence was restored in 1956, it once again became the national flag.
 
The red background on the Moroccan flag represents hardiness, bravery, strength and valour, while the green represents love, joy, wisdom, peace and hope. It also represents the colour of Islam and the pentagram represents the seal of Solomon.
