Interpretation of Colours is IR[edit]

It just sources a bunch of random Jewish religious texts which ascribe significance to various colours and claims that therefore that is the interpretation of the colours of the flag. It provides no value and should be deleted. (talk) 04:23, 9 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

We have an article Blue in Judaism... AnonMoos (talk) 20:01, 9 May 2022 (UTC)[reply]

Extended-confirmed-protected edit request on 16 August 2022[edit]

Switch positions of "Flag-of-Israel-4-Zachi-Evenor.jpg" and "Buchenwald-released-palestine-bound.gif" Kxeon (talk) 19:03, 16 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]

 Not done: What's the purpose of this request? A justification for why the Buchenwald image should be first is that it is a historically important image, and the Evenor image is bland (and bland enough to have some justification for removal). SWinxy (talk) 05:07, 20 August 2022 (UTC)[reply]


The Colour "תכלת" is called azure in English as such the flag colour are azure and white and not blue and white, Use Blue and White terminology by Israelis isn't real evidence to the actual official colours of the flag there is legal document that reference the colour in Hebrew and translation isn't that hard

we need to add about the palistine war Iiioioioiooo (talk) 18:12, 13 October 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Not done: If you can provide well-sourced information related to the flag, please do provide it here. You are likely looking for 2023 Israel-Hamas war and the numerous related articles. Tollens (talk) 19:51, 13 October 2023 (UTC)[reply]
Iiioioioiooo -- What is the relevance of the current conflict to the flag? Please explain... AnonMoos (talk) 20:11, 13 October 2023 (UTC)[reply]

Colours section[edit]

The "Colours" section of the article is completely empty except for a table containing the specific values of the colors of the flag, which appears to be wholy unsourced?

I'm not a Hebrew speaker, let alone a native one, but I have an interest in historical linguistics and it's my understanding that legislation simply describes the flag of a תְּכֵלֶת‎ (təḵēleṯ) color, which in Modern Hebrew refers to a sky blue color, but historically refered to an indigo-like color extracted from a species of sea snail. It feels like this information should be in the article.

If the flag has no legal specifications for its color, than the table should be removed, if it has, then those specifications should be sourced. Pescavelho (talk) 12:16, 11 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]

We have a whole article on Tekhelet... AnonMoos (talk) 08:59, 12 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
I feel like it merits mention in this article anyways, the Colours section is completely empty otherwise. Regardless, my issue is mostly that the color table in this article, which lays out specific color codes, cites no sources. Normally I'd just add an Unreferenced section template but the page is protected so I'm bringing this up in the talk page. Pescavelho (talk) 16:18, 12 June 2024 (UTC)[reply]
The International Flag Book in Color, by Christian-Fogd Pedersen, noted that the shade of blue on the national flag is variable. (talk) 19:01, 9 July 2024 (UTC)[reply]
