Description

Israel Nature Preservation Society is the first and largest green organization in Israel, first dedicated to preservation of nature and later also involved in other related subjects. Probably the biggest NGO in Israel. The flag in use is its logo (iris and inscription) in green over white. Sources: author's own observation, 6 September 2001; INPS website.

INPS also operates the Buildings and Settling Sites Preservation Council, dedicated to preservation of old buildings and sites all over Israel. I spotted its flag beside the INPS one at Atlit's Illegal Immigrants Detention Camp Site, restored and operated as a museum by the council. It is white with its emblem in blue. The emblem shows an old house, maybe the legendary Herzliya Gimnasium, once destroyed in order to build Shalom Tower and the symbol of how we lost a beautiful historical site in favour of 'progress'.
