Local Council of Segev-Shalom (in Arabic: Shuqib Al-Salam)
is a bedouin town in the Negev, formerly part of the dissolved
Regional Council of Mashosh. Situated 4 km SE to Be'er Sheva and administrated by the
Ministery of the Interior until first elections are made. Pop.
5,000 inh., all Muslim beduins. The flag is reported as white
with emblem, but the colours of the emblem need confirmation. The
municipal emblem has not been published in the official gazette (Rashumot),
though an intent was made in 1997, and is thus unofficial. The
Local Council uses the proposed emblem.

Also known as Sagiv, it was initiated by the Ministry of
Housing in 1984 to settle Bedouin from Arab Al-Azazma tribe.
