Israel's flag was adopted on October 28, 1948. The flag is white with two horizontal blue bands and a blue Star of David in the center. The colors blue and white were taken from the colors of the Jewish prayer shawl (tallit). The Star of David (Magen David) is a traditional symbol of the Jewish people. The ratio of the flag's height to width is 8:11.

This flag was designed for the Zionist movement by David Wolfsohn (1856-1914), a Zionist leader from Lithuania. The flag was was first flown at the First Zionist Congress in Basel, Switzerland, in 1897. Israel came into existence in November 1947, following a UN resolution on British-ruled Palestine (resolution 181). The State of Israel was proclaimed in Tel Aviv on May 14, 1948.
