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 red, upper fly is green. The civil/regional
defence formations are now part of the Homefront
Command [Pikud HaOref] - I do not know if these
colours are now used by them.
Nahum Shereshevsky, 23 June 1997
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.

Homefront Command (Pikud HaOref) was
established in 1992 following the Gulf War and replaced the Civil
Defense Force and Regional Defense Units.
