Emblem adopted 17th December 1964
Qiryat Ono is situated 11 kms east to Tel-Aviv, just east of Ramat Gan, and named after the biblical Ono Valley (Nehemiah 10,12). It was founded in 1939 and has 30,000 inh.
The unofficial flag spotted is blue with emblem. The flag is printed on both sides, so they are the same and the background is not mirrored. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), YP 1139, 17 December 1964, for the then Local Council Qiryat Ono.
