I recently found here postcards showing items from an
exhibition entitled Blue-White in Colours that took
place in 1996-1997. I assume that the exhibition was about
Zionism reflected in postcards, greeting cards, posters etc. Some
of the cards have flags on them:
- A Zionist Calendar for the Jewish Year 5664, St.
Petersburg, 1903. The flag is in b/w so I'm not sure
about the colours. It is divided horizontaly, the upper
part is probably blue, the lower part white. On the blue
half there are 7 stars, in gold/yellow or white. These
are Herzl's 7 stars, but here they are 5-pointed instead
of the usual magen-david like six-pointed stars. In the
centre of the flag there is a large dark magen-david,
probably in dark blue.
- The Ship of Redemption, greeting card for the
new year, New York, 1925. There are two flags there, blue
over white with a golden magen-david in the centre. Below
the magen-david there are inscriptions in gold. On one
flag, "...for out of Zion shall go forth the
law" (which continues, "and the word
of the Lord from Jerusalem", Isaiah 2,3). On
the other flag: "The Labour Battalion". This
was an organization of pioneers in the 1920's. Its
members worked in road construction.
- The Daughter of Zion, greeting card for the new
year, Germany, c. 1910. It shows a woman holding a long
continous flag (streamer?). It is white, has two blue
stripes like in the Israeli flag, but also two narrower
stripes, in a lighter shade of blue, close to the wider
ones. Between the inner stripes and in the same shade of
blue, there are small magen-davids, running along the
flag, with the word "Zion" in hebrew inside

The book is called "Vrldens huvudstder", which
translates to "The capitals of the world". It is also
said that the book has a "complete" flag map, which it
does not, since it e.g. does not show the flag for Liechtenstein
and Manchukuo, even though the capitals of these countries are
presented inside the book. Interesting is also the flag for
Palestine, virtually the same as the flag for Israel from 1948
(even if the Magen David is black in this picture, but the flags
are overall a bit inaccurate).

It is not the flag of "Palestine 1938" since in that
era it was the british ensigns that should represent the mandate
government, while the current Israeli flag (always with blue
Magen David) was the flag of the Zionist Federations and the
de-facto flag of the Jewish population.

I recently bought an atlas from 1932 when I was in Frankfurt,
Germany. Inside there was a loose map, entitled Der Nahe
Osten (The Near East). The map was from the Deutsche
Allgemeine Zeitung newspaper and printed in 1941. Along the
side of the map are short political histories and pictures of
flags from the following nations: Egypt, Albania, Bulgaria,
Greece, Iraq, Iran, Yugoslavia, Palestine, Romania, Saudi Arabia,
the Soviet Union, Syria, Transjordan and Turkey.
The flag for Palestine is a simple blue over white. Maybe the
German paper used that flag and omitted the Jewish symbol?
