Emblem adopted 17th January 2000
This is one of the villages in the Golan Heights, an area of Syria occupied by Israel since 1967 and unilaterally annexed in 1981. Under Israeli law and de facto, the Golan Heights are part of Israel. International law and the United Nations still recognize the Golan Heights as part of Syria.
Regional Council Golan covers all the area of the Golan Heights. It was founded in 1978 and got 9,500 inh in 32 settlements. I was notified by the RC that the unofficial flag is white with emblem. However, in my visit I found out that it is on turquoise / light blue background with inscription above the emblem. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), 'Publications Gazette' section (Yalkut ha'Pirsumim), YP 4843, 17 January 2000. Sources: letter from the regional council, 16 September 2001; desk flag; this webpage; author's own observation, 2 October 2001.
