Local Council Be'er Ya'aqov (meaning Jacob's Well, after Rabbi Ya'aqov Yitz'haki, leader of the founding group, and the ancient Roman well found in the site), is situated in the centre of Israel, east to Ramla and south to the old main road Jaffa-Jerusalem. Est. 1907, Local Council since 1949. In my visit I could only see national flags on the city hall.
. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), 'Publications Gazette' section (Yalkut ha'Pirsumim), YP 633, 13 November 1958.
