Rainbow peace flag

image by Randy Young

This flag features the Hebrew and Arabic words for "Peace" (שלום or "Shalom" and سلام or "Salaam" respectively) over a seven-striped rainbow flag, seeming to mix the "PACE" rainbow peace flags with the seven stripes of the gay pride flags. That said, I'm not sure which category this flag would fall into, but wanted to post it here anyway.
Randy Young, 11 February 2015

However, rainbow peace flags always have seven stripes, regardless of the inscription, while the gay pride flags usually have only six, sometimes eight, and very rarely, seven. In Israel, gay pride flags seem to always have only six stripes. Eight-striped version seems not to be used outside the USA at all, and the same with the seven-striped one (maybe a few exceptions) – they had both been originally abandoned after a short period of use, so it was the six-striped version that spread outside the USA. The recent reintroduction of eight- and seven-striped versions seems to be limited to the USA, where they have only been remembered outside the vexillologist circles. To cut it shorter, this belongs to Israeli political flags, not LGBT ones.

Peace flag derived from the national flag

image by Tomislav Todorovic

A flag derived from the Israeli national flag by replacing the Shield of David with the peace sign in blue was spotted in Tel Aviv on 2007-05-10:

A closer look reveals that an unfinished national flag was used to make it, taken before the Shield of David was attached, the peace sign being painted (most likely, sprayed) upon the field. The flag seems to have been used extremely rarely, for this has been the only recorded instance of its use so far.

"Peace now" flags

Two flags paraded by the progressive Israel "Peace Now" movement in 2017 in Tel Aviv, Israel to mark 50 years of Israeli occupation of "Palestinian territories" in the West Bank / Judea & Samaria; Credit: Moti Milrod. The blue slogan in the white/blue flag that mimics the Israel national flag reads in Hebrew: "Shalom" (or "Peace") which replaces the regular Star of David or the "Magen David" in the middle white stripe. The white/black/red flag reads "Shalom/Peace" in black and in red "achshav" (now), resulting with the overall slogan of: "Shalom Achshav" or "Peace Now". (Source:
