About the IDF Pin Insignia Israeli Defense Forces Emblem
Israel Defense Forces Emblem is the primary symbol representing the Israel Defense Forces (IDF).
The symbol contains the symbol of the Haganah, Sword integrated olive branch. The Sword in the symbol represents the readiness to war, while the olive branch symbolizes the yearning for peace. The Sword and the Olive Branch are in the outline of a Star of David, an important symbol of the Jewish tradition symbolizes the Jewish people and its history.
The only person that is allowed to carry the emblem of the IDF as a hat badge is the Head of the General Staff, the CIC of the IDF (RAMATKAL). The current RAMTAKAL wears a black IDF emblem over his brown Golani beret. When the Ramatkal was the former Commander of the Israeli Air Force his emblem was coated with Nickel Silver color. There is also a gold color coated hat badge, but since no Ramatkal came from the Navy, the emblem hasn't been in use yet.
