About the flag

Album 2000 [pay00] shows a 1:1 green flag with coat of arms in the middle. I suspect this flag is rather new (part of early 1990’s flag reorganization?), since it is not mentioned neither in FTTAAATW [smi75b] nor in FAAATW [smi82] nor even in Crampton [cra90].

According to Lux-Wurm’s article [lux01], The Royal flag is a red triangular flag with a yellow border on its free edges and a green and yellow pentagram placed in the middle of the flag. Lux-Wurm says that this flag was the standard used by Hasan II (1961-1999).
Ivan Sache, 16 June 2003

In Lux-Wurm’s article [lux01], ratio is ≅5:7, while Louda [lou72] seems to show it much wider, ≅7:11.

This flag is also shown in 1955 Flags of All Nations [hms55]. In Fachinger [fcgXX] are quoted as sources the 1954 Album des Pavillons March 1957 ammedement [f9r57], and Carr Flags of the world [car53]. (The yellow border is always pictured or quoted as dark yellow.)

Royal standard?

Spanish newspaper El País published an article (15th July 2000, Comunidad Valenciana supplement, p. 3) about an audience granted by King Muhammad VI of Morocco to the president of the Valencian Region (Spain). Behind the King appears a national flag with a border made of embroidered olive leaves (possibly golden, possibly green as the star). It may be simply an ornament, but it certainly is not simply a fringe and I wonder whether this might be any kind of royal standard.
