Emblem adopted 6th December 1990
Local Council Dir el-Asad (meaning Lion's Monastery in Arabic) is situated in Western Galilee, north to Akko-Zefat road, near Karmiel. Founded about 400 years ago and got 7,000 Muslim inh. In my visit I saw no flags and I was told it is a white flag with the emblem but no one remembered the colour. My guess it is either blue or green on white. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), 'Publications Gazette' section (Yalkut ha'Pirsumim), YP 3822, p. 747, 6 December 1990. Source: author's own observation, 11 October 2001.
