Not sure what your point is... Influences from flags are often part of Eurovision logos
This year’s event, like all, will be a huge propaganda event for the host nation. For Israel it presents a big opportunity to present a normalised, non-political view of the country to over 200 million viewers worldwide. From the outset it was said that the logo/stage would reflect the Star of David. This is clearly a huge chance for Israel to legitimise the country in the eyes of many viewers. The Star of David is a powerful symbol that goes far beyond its political use by the State of Israel. It’s all part of the culture wars that you see every day where many people deny Israel the right to exist. Even the EBU itself doesn’t allow KAN (previously IBA) to refer to Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. This is almost Israel sticking two fingers up to its haters.
There'll be a lot of that, which will strike a chord back here particularly due to the presence of an antisemitic opposition party.
Don't confuse Antisemitism with opposition to the actions of the Israeli state, two totally different things.
Anyway, back to the lovely logo and branding
