Flag of Israel

Special: 60 years of Israel's independence in 60 slides of flag animation in Hebrew.

History of Design: The flag of The State of Israel includes two blue stripes on white background with a Shield (Star) of David (in Hebrew: Magen David) in the center. This design was first displayed in Rishon-LeZion in 1885 and was also used at the First Zionist Congress in 1897 (Encyclopaedia Judaica, 1971). It was inspired by the tallit (the prayer shawl with blue stripes worn by Jews during prayer) as a symbol. The Star of David is a common symbol of the People of Israel from Biblical times. The flag was adopted officially on October 28, 1948 (25 Tishre, 5709) by the Speaker of the Provisional Council of State.

Specifications for the standard flag: Dimensions: 220 cm X 160 cm with white background. Two 25 cm wide horizontal blue stripes are placed 15 cm from the edges. The Shield of David, composed of two intersecting equilateral triangles, is located in the center of the flag. It measures 69 cm from top to bottom, with each side being 60 cm in length. The color of the stripes and the star may range from blue to Yale-blue.
