Coat-of-arms adopted 30th October 1958
Regional Council Galil Elyon (meaning Upper Galilee) is situated in the north of Israel in area known as the Galilee finger (because of its geographical shape) near the border with Lebanon. It was established in 1950 and unites 29 settlements with 15,000 inh. Mr. Gideon Shelakh of the Regional Council wrote me that the council does not have an official flag. The council uses its logo on various backgrounds red, green, yellow, blue and purple. I chose red for my image. Source: e-mail from Mr. Gideon Shelakh, Regional Council, 22 August 2001 and the municipal website.
