Israel adopted its flag in 1948, shortly after the country’s establishment. The flag was designed for the Zionist movement in 1891. The design is similar to a Tallit
, a Jewish prayer shawl that is white with blue stripes. The flag features a Magen David
, or “shield of David,” which became a Jewish symbol starting in medieval Prague and was adopted by the first Zionist congress in 1897.
This flag is made from durable 200-Denier nylon that has been treated to resist fading. The flag is finished with a 3 in., flannel-lined pole hem with Velcro hang tab and bordered with gold rayon fringe. Its image is dyed, single-sided, and reversed on the back. This flag is suitable for indoor or parade use.
This flag is used by Israel’s government and displayed at the U.N. Headquarters in New York.
