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 blue, upper fly is yellow.

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corps don't. Anyway I think it is obsolete now.
