Caption: On the annual "Jerusalem Day" national holiday, Israeli flags are marched through the Old City's Damascus Gate (here in May 2016). [photo credit: Oliver Fitoussi]. This parade celebrates the re-unification of Israeli-held West Jerusalem with Jordanian-held East Jerusalem, when Israeli troops seized the eastern quarter of the city during the June 1967 "Six Day War". {In opposition, many Muslims celebrate with their annual "Quds Day" that is held on the last Friday of Ramadan.}In this photo there are the obvious Israel national flags, but the flag of interest is the blue flag with imagery of a white mosque (the "Dome of the Rock" (Arabic:‎ Qubbat aṣ-Ṣakhra, Hebrew‎ Kippat ha-Sela) ?) and slogans in Hebrew. Perhaps one of your Israeli contacts can provide a translation of the Hebrew on the blue flag.

This photo shows a different "Jerusalem Day" flag in 2019. Apparently, two different flags.

Caption: On the annual "Jerusalem Day" national holiday, Israeli flags are marched through the Old City's Damascus Gate (here on June 1, 2019 -- because the Hebrew calendar differs from the Western Gregorian calendar, the date of this holiday varies yearly). This parade celebrates the re-unification of Israeli-held West Jerusalem with Jordanian-held East Jerusalem, when Israeli troops seized the eastern Muslim quarter of the city during the June 1967 "Six Day War". {In opposition, many Muslims celebrate with their annual "Quds Day" that is held on the last Friday of Ramadan.}

In this photo there are the obvious Israel national flags, but the flag of interest is the flag at far right that appears to have slogans in Hebrew. {To my eyesight, there also appears to be a different flag on the left side. Both of these unknown flags have a broad blue stripe at the top and bottom, whereas the Israeli national flag has a white-stripe above and below their blue stripes.} Perhaps one of your Israeli contacts can provide a translation of the Hebrew on the blue flag, or offer a better image/info.
