Sea of Galilee Flag

Sea of Galilee Flag

A flag for the lowest fresh water lake of the earth. Composed of the famous Jesus Fish, water waves, and a harp.

In the canton we have a Hebrew Harp, sometimes called David's Harp. The base is white with black grounding for the multicolored strings. The rainbow colored strings denote an acceptance of all things and reflect the natural joy found in a rainbow. A rainbow is a positive symbol in all cultures. The seven strings are harmonious reflections of the seven tones in an octave - A, B, C, D, E, F, G.

On a navy blue background is a white Jesus fish symbol, facing towards the harp - as if listening to the sweet divine music. Under the Hebrew Harp and Jesus Fish are three waves - two of azure blue and in the middle one indigo.

Why do we have a harp? Because in the first testament this body of water is described as "Kineret," which sounds a lot like "harp" in Hebrew - 'Kinnor.'
