Emblem adopted 12th January 1986
Local Council Bnei Ayish (meaning Sons of AYISH, Hebrew initials of Aqiva Yosef Shlezinger) is situated in the seashore plain, 3 km south of Gadera, west of the main road Tel-Aviv - Beer Sheva (Road 40). Established 1957, became a Local Council in 1961, pop. 6,500.
The unofficial flag is white with emblem. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot, Yalkut ha-Pirsumim), YP 3291, 12 January 1986. From the Local Council map/brochure (Atlas-Israel, 2000), my translation:
The emblem of the settlement marks its ideology. Village house and furrels represent the rural charachter of the settlements. Cogwheel represents values of labour. The tablets of the ten commendments symbolize the values of the Jewish nation. Sun symbolizes freedom and olive branches symbolize the desire for peace and brotherhood.
