[Chabad-Lubavitch Movement (Israel)]

Chabad is a religious Jewish Hassidic movement known also as Chabad Lubavitch. The movement is using flags with a crown and the Hebrew word Mashiakh (Messiah) on yellow. I took this picture of a flag at Zefat. There is a logo in this website.

From their website:

Chabad-Lubavitch is a philosophy, a movement, and an organization. (...) The word "Chabad" is a Hebrew acronym for the three intellectual faculties of: chachmah-wisdom, binah-comprehension and da'at-knowledge. (...) The word "Lubavitch" is the name of the town in White Russia where the movement was based for more than a century. Appropriately, the word Lubavitch in Russian means the "city of brotherly love". (...) Following its inception 250 years ago, the Chabad-Lubavitch movement swept through Russia and spread in surrounding countries as well. (...)

The crown on this flag comes from the common belief that the Messiah is descends from King David and therefore is sometimes referred to as the The King Messiah.
