I found a photo taken in the 2nd Zionist Congress (held in Basel in August 1898). The photo show the first Zionist flag which the current Israeli flag is based upon. The stripes are thinner then the current flag and the emblem includes a lion and 7 stars.

In this website is a poster issued in 1947 (image here also) celebrating 50 years to the first Zionist congress. You can see Herzl with two flags, the current one and the first Zionist flag — the one in the black and white photo above.
