A Kingdom, located in northwest Africa, bordering the Atlantic Ocean and the
Mediterranean Sea. Economy is based mainly on agriculture.
Morocco's strategically position as a gateway to Northern Africa, made it a target
for several European powers. In 1912 most of its territory came under protection
of FRANCE, while a small strip on the northern shore was Spanish (see SPANISH MOROCCO).
The city of Tangier was an international zone (see TANGIER, French P.O.).
For Morocco issues prior to 1912 see MOROCCO, French P.O., MOROCCO, German P.O., and also MOROCCO AGENCIES which were British post offices throughout Morocco until 1957.
In 1956 the three zones of Morocco, French, Spanish and Tangier, became independent and united as Morocco, and on August 15th 1957 it became a Kingdom. During 1956-1957 the French
(Southern) Zone and the Spanish (Northern) Zone had separate issues each with
the relevant currency and style.
Only in 1958 stamps for whole Morocco were issued (in French style). First
stamps issued in 1914. Direct UPU membership (without the Spanish Zone) from
October 1st 1920, Direct as united Morocco from October 15th, 1956. Annual
output about 15.
