Israel-Palestine Peace Flag

[Israel-Palestine Peace Flag (Israel-Palestine)] image by Eugene Ipavec, 12 March 2012

In news video footage (France 3, 07 Jun 2011), Bernard Genin, Mayor of Vaulx-en-Velin, shows a flag he brought back from a trip to Palestine.
Ivan Sache, 30 September 2011

(The image is missing three small inscriptions, one in Hebrew, one in Arabic, and one illegible. The Hebrew one is "[something] peace"; the Arabic is probably the equivalent.
Eugene Ipavec, 15 March 2012

It misses a fourth inscription as well: at the bottom, only visible in those shots that show almost the entire flag unobscured is yet another inscription.

"Breaking the Ice" Project

['Breaking the Ice' Project (Israel-Palestine)] image by Eugene Ipavec, 15 December 2010

«Breaking the Ice» is a peace project by Israelis and Palaestinians. A mixed group is on the way to climb together a mountain in the Antartica for the first time to show that is possible for the peoples to work together and to trust each other. German TV ARD shows this week several reports of the journey. The first part was a sailing trip. On the boat was set the project flag.

In a Yahoo News photo (ephemeral url) an Israeli/Palestinian peace flag can be seen, captioned:

Unidentified young Palestinians and Israelis from the University of Haifa in Israel pose while displaying a flag symbolizing the peace between their two countries on the summit of Mont Blanc, in the French Alps, Thursday, Aug. 5, 2010. The expedition organised by the 'coexistences association' is led by Swiss mountaineer Jean Troillet and is supported by the cities of Chamonix, Coumayeur and Haifa.
White flag with two circular segments of the IL and PS flags, over which there are superimposed two (rather ragged-looking) white birds (doves, I guess) in flight.
Eugene Ipavec, 15 December 2010

The flag is only Israeli. There are no Palestinian students at the University of Haifa. Those students were sent by The Jewish-Arab Center in this University and are all Israelis (Jews and Arabs).

It seems that the birds have eyes, and the Magen David is solid?
António Martins-Tuválkin, 16 December 2010

I don't think the ones in the photo did... the drawing could have been a prototype.
Eugene Ipavec, 22 December 2010

It would appear each dove was drawn to hide most of the specific charge of the flag it is on. Also, the blue stripes are rather wide, for a flag of Israel. Both, I guess, to create two similar flags that each consist mostly of a white stripe with coloured stripes above and below.

Composite Flag in Atlantic Monthly Illustration

[Composite Flag in 'Atlantic Monthly' Illustration (Israel-Palestine)] image by Eugene Ipavec, 12 March 2012

The May 2008 issue of the US newsmagazine the Atlantic Monthly featured a story with the provocative title "Is Israel Finished?", specifically on the danger to its stability and character posed by Arab demographic growth. The article suggested that the inextricability of the two peoples may result in a binational outcome becoming inevitable, a point illustrated by the cover image, a composite Israeli-Palestinian flag.

Composite Flag from Unidentified Illustration

I do not know how "new" this flag is, but today is the first time that I have seen it.

Article (but no image):
Issued in the midst of a sustained attempt by the Palestinian Arabs to destroy it at birth, Israel's 1948 declaration of independence urged them "to participate in the upbuilding of the state on the basis of full and equal citizenship and due

Caption: While this flag is touted as an "Arab-Israeli flag" and it copies the layout of the flag of Israel, it retains the colors of generic Palestinian flags (black, red & green). , c. June 2020
William Garrison, 4 June 2020

The image is flipped horizontally and cropped from this photo: which was taken at the protest against the Basic Law: Israel as the Nation-State of the Jewish People, which took place in Tel Aviv, 2018-08-11. The flag is clearly an expression of disagreement with the idea of explicit definition of Israel as a Jewish state (current Basic Laws say nothing in that regard), due to fears that it would only worsen the situation, in Israel as well as in the wider region.

The Wikimedia Commons photo gallery from the event: reveals that the flags used included those of Israel, Palestine and Druze people - clearly, the opposition to the idea is cross-ethnic.
Tomislav Todorovic, 4 June 2020

Here is another look at this flag: 

Caption: pictured is a "One State" flag of a united Israel-Palestine. It re-interprets the normal blue-white flag of Israel (pictured alongside as a dress) with the Palestinian-flag colors of black, green, red and white, but not utilizing the blue in the blue-white Israeli flag; c. July 2020. Due to the lack of blue in this flag, a critic of this "joint/united" flag might claim that this flag represents the Arab-Palestinian dream of absorbing/conquering the Jewish state of Israel -- which might be mollified if the "Star of David" had been half-blue and half-red triangles (if anything can been mollified in this region). [Apparently this photo was taken during a rally of both Palestinians and Israeli "peaceniks" who gathered to show solidarity for a "One State" solution to the current split of "Palestine" into Gaza-Israel-West Bank/Samaria-Judea. ]

"One-State Solution" Proposals

['One-State Solution' Proposal (Israel-Palestine)]    ['One-State Solution' Proposal (Israel-Palestine)]  images by Eugene Ipavec, 30 November 2007

From, this multicolored horizontal striped flag for a 'One-State Palestine' may have some contemporary interest. Of course, it should be noted that the site is notoriously anti-Israel and anti-Zionist.
Ron Lahav, 27 Nov 2007

Purely in design terms (and in a politically-neutral sense), these are not bad proposals: they retain one distinctive element (the horizontal stripes) from both the Israeli ands Palestinian flags while dropping one other distinctive element from both (the red triangle and Magen David.)
