Note: Municipality of Baqa El-Gharbiyye was united with Local Council of Jatt and is now part of Municipality of Baqa-Jatt
Baqa El-Gharbiyye (meaning the Western Bouquet in Arabic) is situated in east Sharon region, 12 km SE to Hadera and SW to Umm Al-Fahm. Est. 1945, Local Council from 1952 and Municipality since 1996. Pop: 18,000, almost all Muslims. In my visit I spotted no flags and had to rely on second hand information which did not know the colour of the emblem (my guess is green) so the flag is only probable until further confirmation. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), 'Publications Gazette' section (Yalkut ha'Pirsumim), YP 3822, 6 December 1960. I used the published emblem even though there is a different one in this webpage.
