Local Council Rame is situated in Galilee, north to Akko-Zefat road, about 5 km from Karmiel on the feet of Mount Khayder (meaning lion). It was the first Arab village to became a local authority in 1923. Pop. 7,000, of which 66% Christians, 25% Druze and 9% Muslims. I spotted a white flag with green emblem on the city hall. The municipal emblem has not been published in the official gazette (Rashumot) and is thus unofficial. Source: author's own observation, 8 October 2001; emblem on the Local Council's sign.
