The Kingdom of Morocco is the 4th oldest monarchies in the world.
Founded 788 AD Idriss I (Idris ibn Abdallah)
The Idrisids, who ruled Morocco from 788-971, are often credited with establishing the first Moroccan state. Morocco’s current ruling family, the Alaouite dynasty, first rose to power in 1666. Over the years, the ruler of Morocco has used different titles such as sultan, but since 1957, the designation King has been used.
The country is a constitutional monarchy with an elected parliament and the throne is usually passed down through the male heirs of the Alaouite family.
The King of Morocco has a wide array of executive and legislative power, particularly over the military, foreign policy, and religious affairs. https://www.oldest.org/politics/monarchy/
The Alawites were the first to use a red flag. Previous dynasties, Merinids and Saadians, used a white flag. The flag was hoisted every morning, and descended every evening, floating above the fortresses of Rabat and Sale.
Originally, this star had six branches (Sulayman star), but then it was reduced to 5 branches (pentagram), which allows the Moroccan flag to display the emblem of the 5 pillars of Islam.

The King Mohammed VI and the
ceremony of allegiance. Royal Palace Tetuan
On July 31 2011—a month
after Morocco’s adoption of a new constitution—
King Mohammed VI held the annual bay‘a
ceremony, the most ostentatious
of the monarchy’s traditional displays. Commemorating
the king’s enthronement, bay‘a
features all the pomp of a medieval pledge of fealty: government
officials (along with state and local representatives) line
up before the gates of the royal palace. The gates open, and
the king appears, wearing the traditional white djellaba,
and he passes amid the crowds of officials and dignitaries
who all bow three times before him in a show of allegiance
and shout “Our Lord bestows his blessing
on you!” Source: http://carnegieendowment.org/2012/06/14/symbol-kind-of-monarch/bu2f
