Local Council Mazra'a (meaning farm in Arabic) is located between Akko and Nahariya, east to road 4, 2 km south to Nahariya. Founded in 1896, it was separated in 1996 from Regional Council Matte Asher and was proclaimed as independent Local Council. Pop: 3,500, mostly Muslims. In my first visit there was no flag, so when I re-visited it I entered the city hall to inquire. The mayor gave me an emblem and informed me the the flag is white with blue emblem. The emblem shows a palm tree and the old aqueduct (compare with the Matte Asher flag) crossing the village [Ottoman aqueduct connecting Kabri springs and Akko]. The municipal emblem has not been published in the official gazette (Rashumot) and is thus unofficial. Source: author's own observation, 2 and 11 October 2001.
