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.

I checked the IDF website, looking at current formation signs (shoulder sleeve insignia). I believe light blue-white is actually the adjutant general (military administration).

Starting of 1 July 2006, the "Heyl Shalishut" will merge with Manpower division of the Army (Land Arm) Command and both will become the new "Human Resources Division". "Heyl Shalishut" will probably cease to exit as seperate force and its colors are expected to become obsolete.
