The photograph above depicts the coat of arms of the modern state of Israel. A seven branched menorah מְנוֹרָה with olive branches on either side with the word ישראל which means ISRAEL in Hebrew. As well, the seven branched menorah is apparently a traditional symbol of Judaism together with the Star of David. "The seven lamps allude to the branches of human knowledge. The menorah also symbolizes the creation in seven days, with the center light representing the Sabbath."
