Regional Council Gush Etzion covers the 'C' areas of the central and east parts of Bethlehem subdistrict and the north part of Hebron subdistrict. Est in 1979 and got 9,000 inh. In its region (but not part of it) are Ma'ale Edomim, LC Ephrata and LC Betar Illit. The above image is based on the desk flag, so there could be changes when used as a hoisted flag.

The emblem of Matte Benyamin has not been formally adopted. Israeli municipalities in areas occupied since 1967 cannot register their emblems. The reason is that those areas are not legally part of Israel and according to international law they are governed by decrees of the military commander of the areas. Many Israeli laws are in force in those municipalities when adopted there by the military commander, but the Symbols/Emblems Protection Act of 1974 is not one of them.
