Local Council Abu Snan (meaning Father of the Teeth in Arabic) is situated in the Western Galilee, 9 km SE of Nahariya, on road 70. Est. at the end of 13th century, a Local Council from 1964. Pop: 10,000 of which 50% Druze, 40% Christians and 10% Muslims. In my visit there were no flags to report. In further communication I was informed that in case of need a blue emblem on white is used. This information is not confirmed so the image is only probable. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), 'Publications Gazette' section (Yalkut ha'Pirsumim), YP 1453, 30 May 1968. Sources: letter from the Local Council, 25 September 2001; author's own observation, 2 October 2001.
