Additionally, the colours blue and purple are intended to represent security and compassion and gold has been added to symbolise the Dome of the Rock and Jerusalem. Key dates are also incorporated into the design include 1948, the year of the Nakba (Catastrophe), and the 1967 war. Elements taken from the Kufiya scarf include the white cross threads for fishing nets and the green threads for olive leaves representing strength. Finally, the thick black lines are intended to represent the trade routes going through Palestine, and the rich history of merchants, travel and cultural exchange.
