Flag of the (possible) Theocratic state of Israel
Proposed location of the State of Judea.

The State of Judea (PLO declared the existence of a Palestinian state in 1988, some settler activists (primarily Kahanists) feared that international pressure would lead Israel to withdraw from the West Bank and sought to lay the groundwork for an Orthodox Jewish state in the West Bank if this came to pass. In January 1989 several hundred activists met and announced their intention to create such a state if Israel withdrew.[1][2][3][4][5]

The idea was revived following the unilateral disengagement plan which resulted in the forcible withdrawal of Jewish settlers from Gaza by the IDF in 2005. In 2007 rabbi Shalom Dov Wolpo suggested the establishment of a new state in the West Bank in the event of Israeli withdrawal.[6][7]


The flag of Judea is very similar to the flag of Israel. Like the flag of Israel, it depicts a blue symbol on a white background, between two horizontal blue stripes, but unlike the flag of Israel the symbol is a Menorah instead of a Star of David.
