Israel State seal
The official emblem was adopted nine months after the state of Israel was established.
David Ben Gurion, created the seal for the new State of Israel. He chose two olive branches surrounding a menorah. It is Israel’s state seal to this day. On the ends of each of the seven branches of the menorah is one word of the declaration: “Lo b’chil, u’lo b’koach, ki im b’ruachi” (Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit says the Lord of Hosts”). From Zechariah 4:6, spoken during the time when the Jews were rebuilding the Temple after the Babylonian captivity.
