Local Council Daliat el-Carmel is a Druze village on top of Mount Carmel about 20 Kms SE of Haifa. It was established in the beginning of the 18th century and has 13,000 inh., most of them Druze. Its name means vine branches of the Carmel.
There are three flags hoisted from the municipal building. On the right there is the Druze flag, on the centre there is the national flag and on the left, the municipal flag blue emblem on white. Here is a photograph of the flag.
Maybe due to the touristic nature of the village there are flags all over it national, Druze, commercial and even Maccabi Haifa F.C flag. Unfortunately I have no Arabic fonts so the Arabic inscription came a little blurred. Sources: author's own observation, 1 September 2001; city website. Unfortunally the other Druze village nearby, Isfiya, was quite flagless.

The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), YP 1286, 30 June 1966.
