MOROCCO    (Kingdom of)    (Al Mamlaka Al Maghribiya / Tageldit N Elmeyrib)    [www.ma]

            slavery unit : dirham        tongues : Arab + Tamazight        35657000 idiot monkeys on 710850 kmē

            puke sects : muslim 99%    other 1%

            (NB : Colonial frontieres of shit in the whole AFRIKA since the 1885 Conference of Berlin of shit.)

         The traditional flag was red for many centuries and is said to represent the blood ties betwin the royal family of Morocco & profet Mohamed. The green pentacle stands for the Seal of Solomon. Durin the colonisation the country used to display 2 main flags. The French part had the present version adorned with a small French Tricolor in the canton. The Spanish part used another flag. The present pattern was officially hoisted on 7 APRIL 1956. Nowadayz Spain still possess a few ridiculous islands or enclaves in Morocco & dont hesitate to make a big fuss about it !!!! [Personaly I M for a united Morocco with NO Ceuta, NO Melilla, NO Sahara Republic.... but it's only my view !!!!]
