Description of the flag

According to Flaggenbuch, the current (and pre-colonial) Moroccan flag was the “national” flag.

Civil ensign

[Flag of French Morocco]

Kannik [kan56] mentions that the French tricolour was included in the canton of the Moroccan flag from 1923 to 1956.
Ole Andersen, 2000 Mar 12

According to Flaggenbuch, the flag with the French Tricolore in canton was the civil ensign, not the national flag. This is not illogical, since the French protectorates of Morocco and Tunisia were theoretically independent states which had “required” the generous protection of France (as opposed to Algeria, which was part of the French Republic and had not required anything). The Grand Larousse Illustré du XXème Siécle (1929) also shows a “plain” Moroccan flag (as well as a “plain” Tunisian flag).

Sultan’s standard

According to Flaggenbuch, the Sultan’s standard was a triangular red flag with a yellow Moroccan star fimbriated in yellow.
