Israel Army Enamel Golani Insignia. The Golani Brigade (also known as 1st Brigade) is an Israeli infantry brigade which was formed on February 28, 1948 when the Levanoni Brigade in the upper Galilee was merged with the Carmeli Brigade to form the Golani Brigade. It is subordinated to the 36th Division and is one of the most highly decorated infantry units in the Israel Defense Forces.Tags, pins, insignias and badges of the Israeli armed forces have been and continue to be a source of pride and comfort to Jewish people the world over, in the knowledge that today there is a military force ready to protect the Jewish people from harm, after such long suffering throughout Jewish history. This is why many people enjoy collecting these items, as each one represents the people who have carved their way to victory on the battlefronts of the middle east in order to protect the citizens of Israel. In today's day and age, we realize that the human spirit and the media are even more formidable weapons than armor, however, without this army, there would be no chance for the Jewish people to survive on the small piece of land that they occupy, and this in itself is a great miracle.
