Municipality of Herzliya is situated on the SW Sharon area, just north of Tel-Aviv. It was established in 1924 and named after Beyamin Ze'ev (a.k.a. Theodor) Herzl. It has 100,000 inh. Its official symbol includes Herzl's seven stars, two olive branches (peace), sail boat (situated by the shore) and cogwheel (industry). I did not get too much information from the city spokesman however — I already knew the unofficial flag but lacked a good emblem for drawing it. The unofficial flag is the emblem on a national flag (without Magen David). I scanned the emblem from the desk flag (vertical variant).

The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), YP 1846, 17 August 1972. It replaced the previous and quite similar emblem of the Local Council Herzliya, published YP 631, 30 October 1958.

I was at Herzliya today and I noticed that the stars on the flag are in gold as in Herzl's vision of flag.
