The Israel flag has the ratio 8:1 and it was adopted officially on October 28, 1948. It has a white background that is crossed by two small horitontal blue stripes. The Star of David is located in the middle.
The Israel flag is rich in symbolism. Some believe that the two blue stripes represent the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers. Some see this as territorial ambition on the part of the nation. However, this claim has been debunked. The two stripes likely represent the traditional Jewish prayer shawl. Blue, the color of the sky and sea, may represent divinity.
The naval and civil ensigns are similar, as they feature the Star of David, but they are set on blue backgrounds, not white. The Israel flag is a proud symbol of the Jewish people. The nation is located on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea.
The capital city and largest city of the country is Jerusalem. The Israel flag belongs to a nation whose national anthem or song is titled “The Hope”. The currency is the new sheqel.
