Local Council Lakya was previously part of the dissolved Regional Council Shoket. Situated on the Lehavim-Arad road in the North Negev region, north of Be'er Sheva, it was established in 1985 and has 7,000 inh., all Bedouins.
The municipal emblem has not been published in the official gazette (Rashumot) and is thus unofficial. Publication process was initiated in 1997 but never completed. The Local Council uses this proposal as municipal emblem. The flag has been reported as white with emblem (the emblem itself could be a nice flag instead of placing it on white background). I guess there is also inscription in Arabic but I do not have the needed fonts. The flag is anyway probable pending confirmation.
