Description

Local Council Kfar Kama is situated in the Lower Gallile, 12 km SW to Tiberias on Afula-Kinnereth road. Founded in 1876 and got 2,500 inh., all Muslim Cherkess. It was no wonder to find the Cherkess flag side by side to the national flag and the municipal flag on the city hall. In my visit I spotted a multicolour variety of municipal flags —black on blue, white on red, black on yellow and black on green— showing the emblem with the inscription 'Local Council' in Hebrew (in semicircle, above) and Cyrillic fonts (below).

The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), 'Publications Gazette' section (Yalkut ha'Pirsumim), YP 2063, 17 November 1974.

The lower inscription in those flags reads:

  • : ADYGE^ QASE^
  • : KFAR KAMA
which is not Russian — must be Circassian (aka Adyghe, Cherkess and Kabardian). Most likely it does not mean "Local Council" — the first word, "", is the Circassian autoetnonym and means neither "local" nor "council".
