Coat-of-arms adopted 30th October 1958
Local Council Shavey-Zion (meaning returners to Zion) is located on the coastline between Akko and Nahariya. It was established in 1938 and has 850 inh. Mr. Uri Gefen, Council Archivar wrote me that Shavey-Zion uses an unofficial flag and sent me a real sample. It is 2:3, with a white emblem and semicircular inscriptions on a blue field. Sources: letter from Mr. Uri Gefen, Local Council Archivar, 21 August 2001 and municipal flag sample.

The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), YP 631, 30 October 1958.
