The flag of Morocco (Arabic: علم المغرب) is the flag used by the government of Morocco which served as the national flag of Morocco since 17 November 1915. It is a red field with a green star in the center. The green star represents the five pillars of Islam and the red represents the blood of the ancestors and unity.
The "Cherifian Anthem" is the national anthem of Morocco.
Lyrics/music: Ali Squalli Houssaini/Léo Morgan
Note: Adopted in 1970 and It has been in use since the French protectorate period.
According to Morocco's economy, the law of supply and demand governs the relative liberal economy. Since 1993, Morocco has privatized certain economic sectors that were formerly controlled by the government, in compliance with the law of supply and demand (World Economic Forum, 2013). Because of Morocco's prominent role in African economic affairs, it has become the fifth-largest economy in Africa (World Economic Forum, 2013).
The economic system of the country is characterized by a large opening towards the outside world. In the Arab world, Morocco has the second-largest non-oil GDP, behind Egypt, as of 2017.
The services sector makes up almost 55% of GDP, while mining, construction, and manufacturing make up the other quarter. Tourism, telecommunications, and textiles are the industry sectors that grew the most. Agriculture, which accounts for 14% of GDP but employs 40–45% of the Moroccan workforce, is still Morocco's largest sector. Rainfall is difficult to predict in Morocco's semi-arid climate, and the economy is consequently subject to weather fluctuations. Fiscal prudence has permitted Morocco to reduce both its budget deficit and its debt as a proportion of GDP.
In 2020, GDP based on PPP for Morocco was 273.95 billion international dollars.
According to the World Bank's collection of development indicators, GDP per capita, PPP (current international $) in Morocco was 8,144 dollars in 2021. GDP per capita, PPP (current international $) - actual values, historical data, forecasts and projections - was sourced from the World Bank on September 2022.
