Local Council Be'er Ya'akov (meaning Jacob's Well, after Rabbi Ya'acov Yitzhaki, leader of the founding group, and the ancient Roman well found in the site), is situated in the centre of Israel, east to Ramla and south to the old main road Jaffa-Jerusalem. Est. 1907. In my visit I could only see national flags on the city hall. In a phone call I was told that in case of need they use the municipal emblem on no particular background. I drew it as blue on light blue which seems to be the popular pattern, and yellow on green according to the emblem's natural colours, but it could easily be in other colour or colours. The flag is probable only until further confirmation. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), 'Publications Gazette' section (Yalkut ha'Pirsumim), YP 633, 13 November 1958. Sources: author's own observation, 29 September 2001; phone call to the Local Council, October 2001.
