Arms of the Kingdom on top of the date and value.

The current coat of arms of Morocco (formally, the royal coat of arms) was introduced 14 August 1957. It was developed by the graphic artists Gauthier and Hainaut and shows a pentagram, specifically a two-dimensional Penrose pentacle on a background before the Atlas Mountains and a rising sun. The royal crown is on top. Two lions function as the holders of the shield. On the ribbon underneath, the Arabic inscription is written: (Arabic: إن تنصروا الله ينصركم‎‎) (If you glorify God, He will glorify you) (Quran, Verse 7, Sura 47).
