INTERPRETATION OF NAPHTALI PROPHETIC FLAG
This flag was created from recognized lore about the Tribe of Naphtali.
Jacob who became Israel had twelve sons and Naphtali was son number 6 and that number is in the Jewish star in the right bottom corner. Naphtali's name is written in English at the top and in Hebrew on the bottom.
The center of the flag contains the heraldic image of deer or “hind” for Naphtali that is taken from the prophesy of Jacob in Genesis 49:21 -- “ Naphtali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words.”
The image is encapsulated in the Hebrew letter “YUD or YOD”. In Jewish mystical tradition, Yud represents a divine point of energy. Since Yud is used to form all the other letters and since God uses the letters as the building blocks of creation, Yud indicates Gods omnipresence. Yud is considered the starting point of the presence of God in all things and the “spark” of the Spirit in everything.
The background of the flag is in the color of the Amethyst stone that is associated with Naphtali and thought to represent this tribe on the ephod.
