Sports and Culture Minister Miri Regev instructed the director general of the ministry on Monday to have the office staff work on a proposal that will require all institutions and facilities around the country built through state funding to fly the Israeli flag. 

The proposal would include every soccer field, sports centers, cultural institutions and theaters across the country built through state funding.

"The 68th anniversary of Israel's independence requires us to maintain the values of our state and it's symbols," said Regev. "Israeli institutes need to wave the flag with pride," she added.
