Just guess what the 1939 Flag of Palestine looked like

According to the 1939 French LarRousse Dictionary, the flag of Palestine was one half white, one half blue with a gold Star of David. This was the official flag for the international region of Palestine since at least 1924 up until 1939. Apparently it was rarely seen due to the fact that the Brits were still in charge of the region when the Ottoman Empire disintegrated, so their own colonial flag tended to be flown instead. The authenticity of this flag can be seen in the actual pages of the 1939 dictionary displayed below:
