Following World War II, the British withdrew from their mandate of Palestine, and the UN partitioned this area into Arab and Jewish states, an arrangement rejected by the Arabs. Subsequently the Israelis defeated the Arabs in a series of wars, without ending the deep-seated tensions between the two sides. The flag of Israel is inspired by the Talith or prayer shawl, and was created by the Zionist movement in the late nineteenth century.
The flag was officially adopted a few months after the birth of the new state. The six-pointed star in the middle of the flag is the Magen David or 'Shield of David' and is composed of two equilateral triangles, a centuries old Jewish symbol. The blue stripes top and bottom emulate the blue stripes around the edge of the Talith. The blue colouring is derived from the colour of traditional Jewish Prayer Shawls.Contact us to purchase
