Local Council Tur'an is situated in the Lower Galilee, on the
slopes of Mount Tur'an, north to the main road to Tiberias. A Local Council since 1959
with 9,000 inh., almost all Muslims. In my visit I spotted no
flags but heard reports of white flags with an emblem in unknown
colour. I drew the emblem black, as its original colour. Anyway
the flag is only probable until confirmation. The municipal
emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot),
'Publications Gazette' section (Yalkut HaPirsumim), YP
3128, 30 November 1984.
