Local Council of Qdumim (the locals use Kedumim) is situated in the centre of Samaria, 70 km north to Jerusalem on road 55. Est. 1975. Pop: 3,000. Reports are that in case of need an emblem on various colours is used. My image shows the popular blue on light blue, but this report needs further confirmation so meanwhile it is only probable.

The emblem of Local Council of Qdumim 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.
