Flag of Israel stomped by pro Palestinian protesters in Toronto by Lt. Col. (ret.) Jonathan D. Halevi Around 500 people attended the Emergency Rally for Sheikh Jarrah held on Saturday May 10, 2021 in front of the Israeli Consulate in Toronto (2 Bloor St E). The Palestine House sponsored the protest. Protesters placed an Israeli flag on the sidewalk and stomped on it as an expression of contempt. @leensalous02 #savesheikhjarrah #palestine #toronto ♬ original sound – Leen Salous The flag of Israel was adopted on 28 October 1948, five months after the establishment of the State of Israel. It depicts a blue hexagram on a white background, between two horizontal blue stripes. The blue stripes are intended to symbolize the stripes on a tallit, the traditional Jewish prayer shawl. The Star of David is a widely acknowledged symbol of the Jewish people and of Judaism. In Judaism, the colour blue symbolises God’s glory, purity and gevurah (God’s severity) The White field represents Chesed (Divine Benevolence). Lt. Col. (ret.) Jonathan D.
