THE NATIONAL ARMS OF MOROCCO

Origin/meaning

The coat of arms of Morocco (formally; the royal coat of arms) was officially adopted on August 14, 1957.

The arms show a green pentagram on a red background infront of the Atlas Mountains and a rising sun. The arms are surmounted by the royal crown. Two lions support the shield.

The motto "ن تنصروا الله ينصركم‎" (If you glorify God, he will glorify you) is taken from the Qur'an (Verse 7, Sura 47).

Colonial arms

The colonial arms showed three crescents facing East. These were used until 1957.

Use of the arms on collector's items from 1900-1970
