The flag is square, white bordered banner of the state's arms, blue, white menorah (seven-armed candlestick), olive branches and the name of state beneath.

The menorah on the emblem is a depiction of an engraving on Titus Arch in Rome of the menorah that stood in the second Jewish temple in Jerusalem. The menorah was looted by the Romans. Its fate is unknown.

Gideon Goldstein, 7 January 1998

The presidential flag can seen frequently at official occasions. Since those are usually indoors, they put some kind of frame around it to keep it spread all the time. The flag is made of blue silk with silver strings that are woven on the silk to make the Menorah and the border. When it is hoisted side by side with the national flag, one can see the difference between the white [on the national flag] and silver [on the presidential standard]. I guess that outdoors they may use a plain printed flag, but the so-called official one is silver.

A note in Album des Pavillons 2000 explains that the version for use at sea is with yellow border instead of white.

I never saw a naval version of the presidential flag so I cannot tell how it looks like, however it seems odd that it would have a silver border and gold fringes, [so possibly the silver border is replaced by a gold one] and maybe the Menorah is gold too?
