The Western Israeli Belt Flag
Since there is an Eastern Israeli Belt Flag it only makes sense to have a Western Israeli Belt Flag. In this case the flag keeps the same design but the colours are reversed, also known as a counter change.
A flag to be flown on areas that are directly due west of Israel from about 29 Degrees North to 33 Degrees North. Consequently most of North Africa is in the Israeli Belt which includes: Egypt, Libya, Tunisia, Algeria, and Morocco. No part of Europe's continent is parallel to Israel but the island of Madeira under Portugal and Bermuda under the United Kingdom is parallel to Israel. Thus much of the mysterious Bermuda Triangle lays in the enchanted latitude.
Finally the Israeli Belt crosses North America through Mexico and the United States - touching the states in the Deep South and one 'Northern State.' The US States that have part of their lands due east of Israel include: South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona, and just the southern tip of California. Last but not least Louisiana is the special case, because it is nearly parallel to Israel by north to south. Just for the record, Walt Disney World Orlando Florida is just south of the Israeli Belt, likewise Walt Disney Land Anaheim, California is just north of the Israeli Belt. Louisiana is a bit more humid, perhaps a better climatic match is Southern California or Northern Mexico.
Famous and major US cities in this special belt of latitude include: St. Augustine, Jacksonville, New Orleans, Houston, Dallas, Austin, and San Diego.
