Public Safety Announcement — New Color Safety Flag at Israel’s Beaches

Monday, June 8th, 2015

Until now, regulated beaches in Israel (with a lifeguard) have had a 3 flag notification system for water wave/height/water safety.

White Flag (All’s clear – does the water surrender?)

Red Flag (Exercise Caution when in the water)

Black Flag (Danger – Do NOT enter the water!)

Now a new flag has been added – the Purple Flag, indicating that there are jellyfish (meduzot in Hebrew) in the water, and that one should exercise significant caution.

Enjoy the water – the weather’s going to get really hot again this week…


Desecration of Israeli Flags in Jaffa (Yafo)

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

Unknown vandals desecrated a line of Israeli flags set up along a street in the Tel Aviv suburb of Jaffa (Yafo) in the wee hours of Wednesday.

Red paint was splattered on Israel’s national flags, which were strung along the street to honor the upcoming national Memorial Day and Independence Day holidays next week.

Police have opened an investigation into the incident.

The ancient port city of Jaffa is home to a mixed population of Arabs and Jews. There have been tensions over the growing numbers of religious Jews in the city, and the establishment of yeshivot and other religious Jewish schools and facilities there.
