Description

This Civil Defense Force and Regional Defense Units were replaced a decade ago by the Homefront Command. The colours of the homefront command are the same to those appearing in its emblem - blue and orange. Apparently, this emblem is based on the proposed flag in the 1949 Geneva convention for civil defence.

Homefront Command (Pikud HaOref) was established in 1992 following the Gulf War and replaced the Civil Defense Force and Regional Defense Units. The command is charged on civil defense, search and rescue etc.  
The command adopted the orange color as it is known internationally as the civil defense color.
