More about Morocco

Population

Morocco’s population is predominantly made up of Arabs, Berbers and Arabized Berbers. As the original residents of the Maghreb, the Berbers mostly live in fortress-like settlements (kasbahs) in the mountain regions of the High and Middle Atlas and its foreland, in the Sous area and in the central and eastern Rif.

The descendants of black African slaves or soldiers from the Sudan zone, who mainly live in the south of the country, form a small minority. Most of the Europeans (especially French, Spaniards, Italians; 1955: 540,000) have left the country since 1956.

The average population density (2017) is 80 residents / km 2. Two thirds of the population live in the north-west and north of the country on just a tenth of the country’s area. The areas east and south of the Atlas Mountains are least populated. The economic attraction of the cities has resulted in a strong rural exodus. 61% of all Moroccans now live in urban centers. Most large cities are located in the coastal plain on the Atlantic Ocean or in the area of ​​the Meseta, including the old residences Fès, Meknes, Marrakech and Rabat, the port city of Tangier and Casablanca as the largest agglomeration.

The biggest cities in Morocco

Biggest Cities (Inh. 2019)
Casablanca 3,532,000
Fez 1,171,000
Tangier 1,063,000
Salé 978 000
Marrakech 962 000

Due to the limited employment opportunities in their own country, many Moroccans live as migrant workers abroad, especially in France. Since the turn of the millennium, people from the countries south of the Sahara have increasingly tried to get to Europe via Morocco.

Religion

The constitution describes Morocco in the preamble as an Islamic state and determines (Article 6) Islam to be the state religion; The right to practice religion of ancestral non-Islamic religions is protected, but not the conversion from Islam to other religions (the request to do so is a criminal offense). The continuity and traditional position of Islam in Moroccan society is guaranteed by the king (Article 19), who presides over the council of religious scholars (ulemas) as the “ruler of the believers” (Arabic: “Amir al-muminim”). Over 99% of the population are Muslims, the vast majority of them Sunni from the Maliki school of law. Particularly elements of the pre-Islamic-Berber tradition have flowed into popular Islam; The veneration of local and regional saints ( marabout ) also plays an important role.

The largest group among Christians (Catholics, Anglicans, Protestants, Orthodox; together less than 0.2% of the population), almost exclusively foreigners, are the Catholics in the two exemte archbishoprics of Rabat and Tangier. The Anglican parishes in Casablanca and Tangier belong to the Diocese of Gibraltar. The Reformed Evangelical Church (Église Evangélique au Maroc) is very small. The roots of the history of the Jewish community go back to the 4th century BC. And was in the Middle Ages a. with Maimonides (place of work in Fès) and on the threshold of modern times closely with the Sephardic emigration in the 15th and 16th. Century connected ( Sefarad; Marranen ). Today the Jewish community with around 6,000 members (around 0.02% of the population) is the largest in the Arab world. The seat of the Grand Rabbi is Casablanca, where over 3,000 Jews live (until 1967: around 80,000).

National symbols

The national flag, introduced with independence in 1956, shows the green pentagram of the Solomon’s seal in the middle of the red cloth. Red is the color of the ruling royal dynasty of the Alides, the green of the pentagram is reminiscent of Islam, and the pentagram itself stands for health and life.

The coat of arms introduced by Sultan Mohammed V on August 14, 1957 shows a shield divided by the Atlas Mountains, above a golden sun with blue-golden rays, below in the red field the green star of the Solomon’s seal. Two Berber lions, the heraldic one on the left, hold the shield over which the Moroccan royal crown hovers. The golden banner bears the slightly abbreviated verse 7 of the 47th sura of the Koran “In tansurun Allah yansurukum” (If you help Allah, He will help you) as the motto in Arabic script.
