Emblem adopted 23rd March 1972
Local Council Qiriat Eqron (or Kiriat Ekron, named after the biblical town of Eqron) is situated in the centre of Israel, south east to Rehovot near road 40. Between 1954-1961 it was part of R.C. Brener and in 1961 became a local council, first as Kfar Eqron and later with its current name. I was notified by the L.C. that the unofficial flag is white with emblem. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot, Yalkut ha-Pirsumim), YP 1813, 23 March 1972. It replaced the previous emblem of the Local Council Kfar Eqron, published YP 968, 25 October 1962. Source: letter from L.C. Qiriat Eqron, 16 September 2001; this website.
