The emblem of Local Council. Har Adar has not been formally adopted. Israeli municipalities in areas occupied since 1967 cannot register their emblems. The reason is that those areas are not legally part of Israel and according to international law they are governed by decrees of the military commander of the areas. Many Israeli laws are in force in those municipalities when adopted there by the military commander, but the Symbols/Emblems Protection Act of 1974 is not one of them.

The Radar Hill (named after a Radar of the RAF that was there during WWII) was a battlefield during the Independence war. In this settlement there is a memorial to "Har'el Regiment" , which is the main element in the emblem. Photo of the monument with the municipal flag at <www.har-adar.muni.il>. Another photo of the flag here.
