Israel Flag

The explanation for the symbols of the Israeli Flag

The flag of Israel was adopted well before the creation of the State, by the Zionist movement in the nineteenth century. It will be confirmed at the creation of the State in 1948, not without creating difficulties, given its strong religious symbolism. Indeed, it represents a Star of David (in Hebrew is called "Shield of David") blue on white background, surrounded by two horizontal blue lines on top and down flag, that does not border. The blue colour, or azure if refered to Hebrew, symbolizes the talith, called by the Jewish people, that is to say a large rectangle of wool in which observant Jews are wrapped for morning prayer. In fact, taliths can have different colours ranging from azure: mainly white or black. This flag is one of the few to have an official size: 220 cm x 160 cm. Most other flags have rather a proportion to be observed. This official size helped set the width of the bands of azure top and bottom: 25 cm.
