Degel Yisrael

Israel’s flag is represented in this painting by Jewish refugees from the Nazi Holocaust breaking the British blockade. The blue stripes of the deck frame the Holocaust victims who proudly display the star of David, which is worn not as a badge of shame, but as a medal of honor, representing the unique role that the survivors played in laying the foundation for the birth of the State of Israel. The Jewish star displayed by all of the immigrants becomes the symbol of our national pride.
