Bouchra Bagour was given a €2,000 fine and a one-month suspended prison sentence and her brother, Zayed, received a €4,000 fine and two-month suspended sentence in Nimes today.
Prosecutors had appealed after a lower court in nearby Avignon acquitted the defendants in April.
Gaele Guenoun, the mother's lawyer, said she was astonished the verdict was overruled.
The case centered on a teacher's complaint after the boy, whose birthday is September 11, wore the shirt to nursery last year.
The brother had the shirt made.
