Gilad Shalit solidarity flags

[Gilad Shalit flag] image by William Garrison

Gilad Shalit solidarity flag (in William Garrison's possession). Flag-pole sleeve on the left side.
The Hebrew inscriptions: Above on the right: "Gilad Shalit". Below: "And bring the boys/sons back to their borders", or: "And the boys/sons returned to their borders" (?)

Gilad Shalit (גלעד שליט, born 28 August 1986) is a former POW (prisoner of war) soldier of the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) who on 25 June 2006, was captured by Palestinian militants in a cross-border raid via a tunnel beneath the Gaza-Israeli border. Hamas held him captive for over five years, until his release on 18 October 2011 as part of a prisoner-exchange deal. This flag/banner was displayed to remind Israelis not to forget the long-imprisoned soldier. Apparently, something promoted by the "" c. 2010 (habanim = the boys/sons).

Flag of Nova music festival

[Nova music festival flag] image located by William Garrison

The light-blue-field flag of the "Nova" music festivals that are promoted by the Tel Aviv based "Eventer Company", ca. Oct. 2023. In the middle of the flag is the Nova logo: with the word "Nova" surrounded by short white lines/rays figuratively symbolizing a star exploding in space. Also on the flag, surrounding the logo, there are at the left two crescent moons that are a "pale white/light blue" color, while the right two crescent moons are a "sunrise" red-orange color. A Nova is a sudden increase in brightness of a star before shrinking back down to normality. More powerful than a nova, a supernova is an explosion that heralds the demise of a star.

Nova music festivals originally developed in Brazil about 1998 and the "Tribe of Nova" organization produces music festivals in various countries. I am uncertain as to the legal status of the "Nova" trademark; there seems to be a number of "Nova" music-festival copycats. There have been previous "Nova Rock" music festivals. There was a "Nova Fest" held in Fairfax, Virginia (USA) that was titled: "The Northern Virginian 10th Annual International Film and Music Festival" in April 2023.

The Israel Nova music festival 7 Oct 2023 attack: A Nova open-air music festival was held 6–7 October 2023 near the kibbutz Re'im, which is located in the desert about midway near the eastern Gaza-Israel border. Festival goers were allowed to enter the open-field fairgrounds a couple of hours before midnight for partying before listening to bands the following day, Saturday the 7th. The event's ticket promoter was the Tel Aviv based Eventer Company. It advertised the event as: "Tribe of Nova Presents: Supernova Sukkot ... 6–7 Oct 2023 ... Universo Paralello ... World Tour: Israel Edition ... Nova." It was scheduled to coincide with Jewish holidays: the final day of Sukkot (Friday, 6 October 2023) and Simchat Torah (Saturday, 7 October). Sukkot is one of the three major festivals in Judaism and is both an agricultural festival of thanksgiving and commemoration of the forty-year period during which the children of Israel wandered in the Sinai desert after leaving slavery in Egypt (ca. 1446 BCE), living in temporary shelters (called sukkot) as they traveled. The outdoor, open-field music festival was attacked by Hamas-Palestinian militants [and civilians] shortly after sunrise on Saturday the 7th. Out of some 3000 concert goers, 364 festival attendees were killed and another 45 were kidnapped and forcibly moved into captivity back inside the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip. At the same time other Hamas militants [and civilians] also attacked and killed or captured another 800+ Israeli settlers and soldiers, foreign visitors and guest workers along the shared border.
The Israel Oct. 2023 festival was "one of three unique pre-festival events taking place worldwide, as Nova approached the 17th edition of the Universo Paralello festival to be held during the celebrations of the new civil year [1 Jan 2024] in Praia de Pratigi, located on the southern coast of Bahia, Brazil, within the mystical rainforest."

As at most concerts, there was likely a souvenir stand selling Nova flags, t-shirts, etc. The Nova festival flag (see above). In the sunrise hours of Oct. 7, 2023, a female raver was filmed swaying with the Nova flag (photo #2a & #2b). An undated (early Dec. 2023?) photo (#3) shows several Israeli soldiers holding a Nova flag found somewhere along Gaza's northwestern Mediterranean coast, possibly looted by Hamas militants rummaging through the Nova music festival. A Nova flag (#4) is seen at an Eventer Company music-memorial planning meeting (late Oct. 2023?) for the 11–12 Nov 2023 memorial music concert held in Sdot Yam near Caesarea, Israel.
