    There was once a kingdom known as Judea which occupied all of Israel within the so called green line, all of Jordan which includes Judea & Samaria, The Golan and other parts of modern day Lebanon and Syria and its capital was Jerusalem. That state eventually was divided and we had Judea and Israel. The current flag is a modern design based on the flag adopted by the Hagana although whilst not a holy symbol the Magen David ( translated Shield of David ) was believed to be the symbol on King Davids shield. Israels flag is not the same as it was back then for the simple reason that back then countries didn't wave flags there was no emphasis on national symbols like today. Every state in the region today is based on artificial borders drawn up by the french & british empires after WW1. Countries either have more territory than they once did or less, some countries like Jordan have never existed before 1922. The flag the arabs all fly today in some form is not based on some ancient arab flag its based in the flag Faisal of Mecca adopted during the arab revolt during WW1 when for the first time we started talking about the idea of creating independent arab states things that did not exist prior to then. You can't compare the Middle East today to what it was in the times of the kingdom of Judea.
