Haifa port changed its flag into a logo on white background as
seen at my photo.
The logo on the official website at <www.haifaport.org.il> show darker shades then the actual flag.

Dagon Grain Silos is the grain terminal of Israel. It is
situated in downtown Haifa next to the port and Haifa and
Haifa-Central railway station. The terminal was opened in 1955
under private ownership and since 2003 belongs to the Port
Authority making it a governmental entity. The prominent building
of Dagon is a known land mark of Haifa and include a
archeological museum with ancient grain storage exhibits.
The name "Dagon" is taken from the name of a Canaanite idol (god of the grain). There is a theory that the name is derived from the word "Dag" (=fish) znd not of "Dagan" (=grain). However, according to ancient texts it was the Canaanite's "god of the grain and agriculture". See also wikipedia.
The flag of Dagon is blue and charged with its logo in gold. I don't have a decent logo, so here are only photos of the flag and logo.

I definitely remember that his image for the Philistines was
that of half man and half fish, however, if I have this correctly
he was the god of grain/agriculture for the early Amorites.
