The flags are rectangular, 90 cm × 120 cm and divided
diagonally by a line going from the upper hoist to the bottom
fly. Bottom hoist is green, upper fly is black.

The main element of the flag is usually the shoulder patch or
a similar design. Since these are awarded to brigade-level (or
equivalent) formations while flags are awarded to
regiment/batallion-level formations, the latter flags have
additional elements to distinguish the specific battalion. (...)
The finials are in the shape of the corps emblems and attached to
them are campaign streamers.

Browsing through some military magazines I came across a photo
of Israeli Merkava tanks in action in Lebanon (1982)
. Each of them had two triangular pennants in the armour
colours (black-green) on the antennas.
 Born in Battle Magazine 30. Eshel (Cologne), 1982. p. 30-31.
