Wellll there's a specific kind of blue used for the tallit, which is where the flag gets its design. תְּכֵלֶת "T'chelet" or "techeleis" (depending on sepahrdic or ashkenazic pronunciation) is a type of sky-blue dye from a sea creature referred to as "Chilazon" in the Talmud (Menachot 44a). There's been some debate over the last century or so about which creature it is. There's some consensus that it might be the snail Murex Trunculus.
