    Israeli Flag history

    Blue and white are colors of Jewish faith since Biblical times. Two blue stripes on white are intended to symbolize the stripes on a tallit, the traditional Jewish prayer shawl. Star of David is a symbol of the Jewish people and of Judaism. Some organizations and individuals - Ludwig August Frankl, Israel Belkind, Fanny Abramovitch, Jacob Baruch Askowith (1844–1908) and his son Charles Askowith, David Wolffsohn, Theodor Herzl and Morris Harris among others - came up with designs that are very similar to the current flag of Israel. In 1897, the First Zionist Congress was held in Basel, Switzerland, to consider re-establishing a homeland for Jews in Palestine. Morris Harris, a member of New York Hovevei Zion, used his awning shop to design a suitable banner and decorations for the reception, and his mother Lena Harris sewed the flag. The flag was made with two blue stripes and a large blue Star of David in the center, the colors blue and white chosen from the design of the tallit. The flag was ten feet by six feet—in the same proportions as the flag of the United States—and became known as the Flag of Zion. It was accepted as the official Zionist flag at the Second Zionist Congress held in Switzerland in 1898, and the State of Israel later adopted the design as the official flag, upon declaration of Israel as an independent state in 1948
