White with a blue hexagram known as the "Star of David"; a blue horizontal stripe at the top and bottom.

Meaning

The design of this flag was created by David Wolfsohn in 1891 for the Zionist movement. The blue emblem in the center of the flag is the Star of David (Magen David), which has been included in Jewish flags for centuries and historically existed long before the establishment (1947) of the modern state of Israel. The colors blue and white are supposed to remind of the Jewish prayer shawl (also called Tallit, Talit, Tallis or Tallith).
