3:4 | 90 cm × 120 cm
by Dov Gutterman
The flags are rectangular, 90 cm × 120 cm and divided diagonally by a line going from the upper hoist to the bottom fly.
Nahum Shereshevsky, 23 June 1997
Bottom hoist is purple, upper fly is white. The purple derives from the colour of their berets, and that derives from the fact that most other colours were already taken! (...) The main element of the flag is usually the shoulder patch or a similar design. Since these are awarded to brigade-level (or equivalent) formations while flags are awarded to regiment/batallion-level formations, the latter flags have additional elements to distinguish the specific battalion. (...) The finials are in the shape of the corps emblems and attached to them are campaign streamers.
Nahum Shereshevsky, 25 May 1998
