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 wonder if blue-yellow is not actually the military advocate general (legal).

No. Advocate General is not a 'corps'. Blue-yellow is supposed to be 'General Corps' i.e. a corps dealing with things that other corps don't. Anyway I think it is obsolete now.
