INTERPRETATION OF REUBEN PROPHETIC FLAG
This flag was created from recognized lore about the Tribe of Reuben.
Jacob who became Israel had twelve sons and Reuben was son number 1 and that number is in the Jewish star in the right bottom corner. Reubens name is written in English at the top and in Hebrew on the bottom.
The center of the flag contains the heraldic image of water for Reuben that is taken from the prophesy of Jacob in Genesis 49:3-4 “ Reuben, thou art my firstborn, my might, and the beginning of my strength, the excellency of dignity, and the excellency of power: Unstable as water, thou shalt not excel; because thou wentest up to thy father’s bed; then defiledest thou it: he went up to my couch.”
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 carnelian stone that is associated with Reuben and thought to represent this tribe on the ephod.
