All 12 Hebrew banners of the Tribes of Israel, illustrated with their traditional iconography and colors, as given in Midrash Rabbah and elsewhere in interpretation of Numbers 2:2 -- "The children of Israel shall pitch by their fathers' houses; every man with his own standard, according to the ensigns." Jacob's final blessings to his sons (Genesis 49:1-27) give clues to most of the symbolism. Behind the banners, the Magen David repeats in subtle blues. You may notice that the layout is very similar to my Game of Thrones fabric design. That design has been so popular -- it's been used for pillowcases, tote bags, zippered pouches -- so why mess with a good thing? All artwork is original (by me).
