The city of Kfar Saba [uses as unofficial flag] a green emblem on orange with two thin vertical stripes (yellow and green) on the fly side.

Dov Gutterman, 15 April and 15 May 1999

I saw this flag at Kfar Saba municipal stadium. I got confirmation from Mrs. Yafa Mizrakhi, Assistant to the Mayor who wrote me, "The emblem is green with orange inscription on the shield. The background is orange." It appears that the small emblems at the municipal website and here had reversed colours. Here is a translation of the explanation about the emblem at the municipal website:

The emblem reflects the characther of the city and it features the Khan [an Ottoman era 'motel'] which was the first house in renewing Kfar Saba later became the city hall. Beside it there are two planted Eucalyptus trees which were planted in 1906. Industrial buildings, houses and citrus trees which charactherised Kfar Saba for many years, are combined together in the emblem. The emblem was designed by Ya'akov Avukayi in 1953.
Kfar Saba is situated in the south Sharon, NE to Tel-Aviv. It was established in 1903 and has 80,000 inh. It is named after the ancient city of Kfar Saba. Sources: e-mails from Mrs. Yafa Mizrakhi, Assistant to the Mayor of Kfar Saba, 20 August 2001, the municipal website and this website.

Yesterday I was in Kfar Saba and I could check that the municipal flag has the yellow and green fly stripes, even though they were not reported by the municipality. Furthermore, the stripes are not equally wide and the green is darker.
