HaHistadrut (The Federation, as it called in short) is the biggest workers union in Israel. It was established in Haifa in 1920 as HaHistadrut HaKlalit Shel HaOvdim HaIvrim BeEretz-Yisrael (The General Federation of the Hebrew Workers in Israel-land), later changed to HaHistadrut HaKlalit Shel HaOvdim BeYisrael (The General Federation of the Workers in Israel) and again changed its name in the early 1990s to Histadrut HaOvdim HaKllit HaHadasha (The New Workers' General Federation) and with this change all former socialist-type symbols and the red flag became obsolete, adopting a new logo (stylized flower) and a new flag which is white with the emblem.
