Emblem adopted 6th December 1990
Local Council Deir Al-Asad (meaning Lion's Monastery in Arabic) is situated in Western Galilee, north to Acre-Zefat road, near Karmi'el. Founded about 400 years ago and got 7,000 Muslim inh. In my visit I saw no flags and I was told it is a white flag with the emblem - but no one remembered the colour. My guess it is either blue or green on white. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), 'Publications Gazette' section (Yalkut HaPirsumim), YP 3822, p. 747, 6 December 1990.

According to the list of united or dissolved local authorities published in the official gazette (Rashumot), section Sefer HaHukim 1897, 5 August 2003, Local Council Deir Al-Asad has been united with Local Councils Majd Al-Kurum and Bine to form a new Local Council whose name has not yet been determined. The Local Council's symbols are now obsolete.
