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. Bottom hoist is orange, upper fly is brown. I heard that that formation is going to be abolished soon.

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.

There is no longer a Women's Corps.
