Penalty for insulting the Moroccan flag

The parliament of Morocco has adopted a law establishing a prison term of six months to three years and a fine of $1,000 to $10,000 against any person who insults the national flag or other national symbols. The prison term may reach five years in case this act is committed at a meeting or a rally.

The law also establishes a fine of $5,000 to $500,000 in case the national flag is used in a trademark, whether registered or not, without an official authorisation.
