The flags are rectangular, 90 cm × 120 cm and divided diagonally by a line going from the upper hoist to the bottom fly.

Bottom hoist is purple, upper fly is white. The purple derives from the colour of their berets, and that derives from the fact that most other colours were already taken! (...) The main element of the flag is usually the shoulder patch or a similar design. Since these are awarded to brigade-level (or equivalent) formations while flags are awarded to regiment/batallion-level formations, the latter flags have additional elements to distinguish the specific battalion. (...) The finials are in the shape of the corps emblems and attached to them are campaign streamers.

The original Giva'ati Infantry Regiment (5th Regiment) was one of IDF regiments during the Independence War. The current Giva'ati Infantry Regiment (84th Regiment a.k.a The Young Giv'ati) was orginized in 1983 and soon afterwards adopted the name "Giva'ati" and the purple as its color.
Dov Gutterman, 5 June 2007

"Givati soldiers are designated by purple berets. The Brigade's symbol is the fox, alluding to Shualei Shimshon (שועלי שמשון, lit. 'Samson's Foxes'), a unit in the 1948 Arab–Israeli War." (Wikipedia)
