Emblem adopted 3rd January 1991
Yavne is situated in the shore plain, 8 km NW to Rehovot and south to Tel-Aviv on road 40. Named after the ancient city of Yavne or Yavne'el (Joshua 15:1-11). Est. 1949. Pop. 30,000. In my visit there was only the national flag on the city hall. My inquiries were answered that in case of need the emblem is printed on various colours. Here is an image of emblem on white which until further confirmation is only a probable one. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), 'Publications Gazette' section (Yalkut ha'Pirsumim), YP 3831, 3 January 1991, replacing the previous one of the Local Council Yavne (YP 854, 15 June 1961).

The desk flag is white with emblem, and most probably that is also the flag for hoisting. Mr Ezra Bar, City Purchasing Manager wrote me on 24 October 2001 (my translation):
The emblem tells Yavne's story in the perspective of time:The emblem colours are orange and blue but are sometimes reversed.
The upper part symbolizes its past, the "Yavne and its wise people" era.
The central part symbolizes the wheels of work and industry.
The bottom part symbolizes the emphasis in the education area (shape of open book).
The motto powers the present, aims to the future and emphasises the past.
