Ma'atz (initials for Makhleket Avodot Tziburiot or
Public Works Department) is the governmental body in charge of
building and maintainance of intercity roads, bridges,
interchanges etc. Its unofficial flag is a logo on white and is
seen very frequently while driving in Israel.

In 2003 Ma'atz was replaced by HaHevra Haleumit LeDrakhim
BeYisrael (Israel National Roads Company), and Ma'atz sumbols
became obsolete as a new emblem (which retain Ma'atz initials)
was adopted as seen at <www.pwd.co.il>.
