Shfar'am derives its name from Shofar ha'Am, meaning 'Shofar of the People'. Its Arab name is Shfa Omar or Omar's Health, after Muslim general Omaro Bin-Elias. It is situated on the road from the Qrayot to Nazareth, northeast of Haifa, 8 km from the seashore. Est. 1910, pop: 30,000 made up of Druzes, Christians and Muslims.

In my visit of 17 September 2001, I spotted a flag on the city hall, white with a blue emblem and inscriptions in three languages.
