The city of Eilat uses as flag a blue logo on many backgrounds. The one on the city hall is yellow but there are also white and light blue.

Eilat is the southmost point of Israel on the shore of the Red Sea. Eilat (sometimes written also as Elat) is a resort place with many attractions and a port. In Eilat there are border passes to Egypt and Jordan. Eilat was established in 1949 and became a municipality in 1959. It was established on a site of a desert police station named Um Rashrash (see the ink flag story). Eilat is named after a biblical port-city and has 49,000 inh.

Mr. Yehuda Kaplinski, assistant to the mayor wrote me as follows:

  1. I couldn't find any source about the adoption of Eilat emblem or flag.
  2. In events, we use coloured flags in sizes of 70 × 150 cm, charged with the city emblem.
I made the image with a yellow field since this is the flag that I saw in the city hall. In my opinion it was 2:3, but he said 70 × 150 cm so I used a 7:15 ratio.

The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), YP 1827, 1 June 1972.
