The current flag of Morocco was adopted on November 17, 1915, and is very similar to the flags of other Muslim countries, such as Algeria and Tunisia. This is not surprising, as Morocco has a long history of Islamic influence. In fact, Morocco was one of the first countries to adopt Islam as the official religion, back in the 7th century.
