Um el-Fahem (meaning Mother of the Charcoals in Arabic) is situated in Eiron Valley (Wadi Ara) on the main road Hadera - Afula. Established in the 13th century, a Local Council since 1960 and a municipality since 1985. Pop. 34,000, almost all Muslims. In my visit on 10 October 2001, no flag was spotted. I was told that in case of need an emblem on white is used. Nobody could tell me the colour of the emblem so I made it in green as it is the emblem's original colour actually it appears as green on yellow, so I cannot rule out using those colours. Anyway the flag is only probable until further confirmation. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), 'Publications Gazette' section (Yalkut ha'Pirsumim), YP 3822, 6 December 1960.
