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 red, upper fly is green. The civil/regional defence formations are now part of the Homefront Command [Pikud ha'Oref] — I do not know if these colours are now used by them.

Nahum Shereshevsky, 23 June 1997

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.
