The Story Behind the Flag and the Coin
‘Operation Uvda’ was the final IDF campaign in Israel’s War of Independence. The highlight of the operation took place at Umm Rashrash, known today as Eilat. The iconic moment was the raising of the Israeli victory flag at a captured Egyptian police station.
After Israel’s victory, the commander of Israel’s Negev Brigade noticed that the unit was missing their Israeli flag. He immediately ordered his soldiers to make one by hand, using a white bedsheet and blue ink!
The iconic image of Israel’s final moments of victory, depicted on the Israel Independence Coin, shows the Israeli ‘ink flag’ being raised by the brigade commander at the abandoned Egyptian base. Just 2 hours later, soldiers from another unit replaced it with a standard Israeli flag. The war was over!
