Displaying the flag of Israel.
I was at a sports event that was nationally televised and I noticed that among the audience, at two separate times, in two separate parts of the arena, someone stood up to display the flag from Israel. It was pretty big. I don't go to these events much so I was wondering if this meant something special, other than national pride?

3. What were the sporting events, who were the teams?
What else would it mean other than national pride?

7. No one seemed to interfere with them.
They had it displayed for a long time -- during times when the game wasn't on, and nobody seemed to bother them.

9. Here's your answer:
The flag holders/wavers were supporters of this guy:

Omri Casspi (Hebrew: עמרי כספי‎, born June 22, 1988 in Israel) is a professional Israeli basketball player who was drafted 23rd overall in the 2009 NBA Draft by Sacramento Kings, making him the first Israeli to be selected in the first round of the draft. He is 6 feet 8 inches (2.03 m) tall and plays at the small forward position. Upon his debut with the Kings in 2009, Casspi became the first Israeli to play in an NBA game.<1>
