When I was in Israel , I saw at rallies of the Herut (Freedom
Party). The emblem shown
on the top right hand of its website was flown as a
flag the same size as the Israeli flag.

This is a modern party, distinct from the Herut party that
dates to the founding of the State of Israel and is now part of

They use this name as the "true followers" of the
original Herut (=Freedom) party (led by Menachem Begin), but had
no success at the elections.

(Freedom) is the list of Herut - Tnu'a'a Leumit [Freedom -
National Movement] and it is a right wing party that was assigned
by the letters Nun-suffixTzadi making it Netz
(Falcon, also a nickname to one that have right wing views). It
was founded after 1996 electiond by Benyamin Ze'ev Begin (son of
former PN Menahem Begin) that retired from HaLikud. In 2000 elections it joined Ihud Leumi but the united list got only
4 seats, a failure that made Benyamin Ze'ev Begin to retire from
political life. And it is led since then by Michael Kleiner. In
2003 the party failed to get a seat and it got only 2387 votes in
2006. Web site at <www.herut.org.il>.
The party name was chosen in order to show that they see themselves as the real successors of the original Herut Movement (which is the major ingredient of HaLikud).
Party logo is dark blue bold Herut cut through with wavy blue line together with a Magen David semi-imposed on the vav, and Tnu'a'a Leumit in light blue below it.
This logo (without the bottom inscription Tnu'a Leumit) with the two blue stripes of the national flag makes the party flag. .
