Emblem adopted 2nd March 1961
Dimona is situated in the NE Negev desert, on Be'er-Sheva - Sdom Road. Established in 1955, named after a biblical town (Joshua 15,21-22) and proclaimed as Local Council in 1958 and Municipality in 1969. I was told by the municipality that Dimona is using the emblem on various backgrounds as unofficial flags. (...) The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot, Yalkut ha-Pirsumim), YP 825, 2 March 1961, for the then Local Council Dimona. Sources: phone call to the municipality, September 2001.

In my visit in June 2003 I found only green on yellow flags with no inscription.
