This roughly depicts how middle eastern countries have similarities in displaying their religious mottos on their flag, share the same colors etc. We see however that Israel is clearly different. It is different in the sense that it does not share the color scheme of the other flags and it clearly states with the Star of David, that they are not of muslim faith. The other flags however share the crescent moon and scriptures on their flags. They have the same color scheme going in different patterns. The Israeli flag, in the midst of all the others, shows that the country itself and its people want to remain seperate and keep their own identity. They have for years been going against the norm and that battle continues. By staying firm in their beliefs and keeping their identity, it shows a lot about who they are as a people and gives room for a lot of discussion about them. -- M.Carvajal
