Coat-of-arms adopted 19th May 1966
The city of Nahariya, 25 km north of Haifa uses as flag a blue logo on many different backgrounds. The one on the city hall is yellow but there also white, orange, green and blue.

Nahariya (meaning river of God) is situated on the sea coast (northmost seashore town in Israel) between Acre and the Lebanese border. Est. in 1935 and named after the Ga'aton 'river' that crosses its main street a very small river.
The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), YP 1795, 13 January 1972. It replaced the previous emblem of the Local Council Nahariya, published YP 631, 30 October 1958.

I visited Nahariya on 17 September 2001 and I noticed that the main flags are now blue. There are still flags in other colours but on the main poles at the city entrance and at the city hall there are blue flags.
