Regional Council Har Hebron (meaning Mt. Hebron) is situated
in the Judea and Samaria District [i.e. West Bank occupied
territories], which means the 'C' areas in most of Hebron
subdistrict. Est. 1982 with 3,800 inh. in 13 settlements. I had
no info about its flag and my letters, fax and phone call were
not answered. Its logo appears in this
website; another version is shown here..

The emblem of Har Hebron 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.
