the previous Regional Councils HaSharon HaZfoni and Hadar

Mr. Yitzhak Sheat'el, City clerk sent me a desk flag. The above image is based on the desk flag so there could be changes when dealing with hoisted flags. The municipal emblem has not been published in the official gazette (Rashumot) and is thus unofficial.
