Local Council Qiryat Arba-Hebron is situated in Judea region next to the famous town of Hebron, south of Jerusalem. Its name is taken from the Bible, meaning town of four. Est. 1968, 5,500 inh.

Its flag is an emblem on a monochrome background of no specific colours. Mr. Zuriel Tzuf of the City Council favours black on green. Sources: letter from the council and consequent phone call, this website.

The emblem of Qiryat Arba-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.
