Recently organized Military Rabbinate (Chaplancy Branch, if
you wish) adopted colours of their own as the other branches. I
have asked a rabbi Dushinsky visiting Zagreb recently who has a
son in the IDF, so a bit roundish, I received an info on this
flags. It is said that the colours of the Harabanut Hatsvait
(i.e. the Military Rabbinate) are yellow and gray for which
colours is siad to represent the sunrise and the sunset.
As the Rabbinate does not havy and barracks of their own the flag would only be visible in their headquarters.

The military Rabbinate Force exists from 1948. However, it
recently adopted new symbols.
