THE NATIONAL ARMS OF ISRAEL
The arms were adopted on February 11, 1949 and show the candle (menorah) of the temple of Jeruzalem between olive branches.
These arms have nothing in common with the arms of the historical Kingdom of Jerusalem.
The arms were decided upon after a competition. Many of the entries for the competition can be seen in the Israeli National Archives. Many were not heraldic, but a few heraldic entries are shown below.
