The flag of Israel was first adopted in 1948, just 5 months after the State of Israel was established.
The flag depicts a blue Star of David on a white background flanked by a blue horizontal stripe above and below the symbol. The flag is intentionally reminiscent of the Jewish prayer shawl, which is white with black or blue stripes. It is worth noting that other religions also use the hexagram, including Muslims who call it the Seal of Solomon
As a leading supplier of Israeli flags, United States Flag Store offers the design in 2 different fabrics: Superknit polyester and heavyweight nylon. Superknit polyester is affordable and durable while heavyweight nylon is more expensive but considerably stronger than polyester. Nylon Israeli flags have a strong canvas heading and 2 brass grommets. Both fabrics are suitable for indoor or outdoor use.
Did you know? Israel's flag features the Star of David, a six-pointed star or hexagram, which has become a universal symbol for the Jewish religion. But throughout history other religions have also used the hexagram, including Muslims who call it the Seal of Solomon.
