Wikipedia:
The Emblem of the State of Israel (Hebrew: סמל מדינת ישראל‎, romanized: Semel Medinat Yisra'el; Arabic: شعار دولة إسرائيل‎, romanized: shiear dawlat 'iisrayiyl) shows a menorah surrounded by an olive branch on each side, and the writing "ישראל‎" (Hebrew for Israel) below it.

The image used on the emblem is based on a depiction of the menorah on the Arch of Titus. The menorah was used in the ancient Temple in Jerusalem and has been a symbol of Judaism since ancient times. It symbolizes universal enlightenment, based on what is written in Isaiah 60: "Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn".

The emblem may also be based on the vision of the biblical prophet Zechariah, chapter 4, where he describes seeing a menorah flanked by two olive trees, one on each side.
