Emblem adopted 9th March 1995
Local Council Abu Gosh (in Arabic - Father of the Thunder) is situated 16 km west to Jerusalem, north to the Highway 1 (Tel-Aviv-Jerusalem). Founded in 1520. Pop. 5,000, all Muslims of one family of Cherkess origin which controled the Jerusalem Corridor during the Ottoman era. In this village you can also find two Christian monasteries.
The Local Council informed me that in case of need a white flag bearing the municipal emblem is used. I was not able to receive details of the emblem colours so I made it in two versions both probable only. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), 'Publications Gazette' section (Yalkut ha'Pirsumim), YP 4289, 9 March 1995. Sources: phone call to the Local Council, September 2001.
