The insignia of three branches of the Israel armed forces are the featured themes of these series of three stamps. In the left hand corner of the stamp, partially overlaying the military corps insignia is the emblem of the State, the Menorah as depicted on the Arch of Titus in Rome, flanked by two olive branches.

The armed service brances' insignia are those of the air force, the navy, and the Israel Defense Forces. They also appear on each respective tab.
