Bet Shemesh (meaning house of the sun after an ancient town with that name whose ruins are nearby) is situated on the border of Juda Mounts and Juda Plain, on a hill (314 m ASL), 5 km south to Shimshon cross and 32 km east to Jerusalem. Est. 1952, pop: 30,000. Unofficial flag is white with emblem, but I would not be surprised to see it also on other backgrounds. Currently, the desk flag is charged with a modified 50th anniversary emblem. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot, Yalkut ha-Pirsumim), YP 1878, 23 November 1972, for the then Local Council Bet Shemesh. Sources: letter from Yehuda Gur-Arie, city spokesman, 20 September 2001; desk flag; this website.
