Facts about the flag:
The flag of Israel was adopted on October 28th, 1948.
The flag is white with two blue stripes and the Star of David placed in the center. The Star of David has been a Jewish symbol since the Middle Ages, and the design of two blue horizontal stripes on a white background is inspired by the traditional Jewish prayer shawl "Tallit".
Behind the design is David Wolfson, who created it in connection with the Zionist World Congress in Basel, 1891. The religious symbolism in the flag was not accepted by all leading Jews at the time, for instance, Theodor Herzl. The color blue on the flag symbolizes the small blue tassels that all male Jews are supposed to carry.
