The Israeli flag is composed of two blue stripes along the top and bottom edges and blue six-pointed star in the center, placed on a white background. White and blue colors are intended to express purity of Zionist´s ideals and the sky. The star is associated with more than 700-year-old Jewish symbolism and is also known as the "Star of David". Moreover, the motif was found on the ring of King Solomon, that is why it is known as the "Seal of Solomon" as well. The blue stripes are inspired by the Jewish prayer shawl called "tallit". The design of the flag was formed in the late 19th century, when the Zionist movement attempted to create a Jewish state in Palestine. The flag was adopted in 1948 when the State of Israel was created.
