Emblem adopted 12 March 1992
Local Council Metar (meaning 'cord', from Jeshaia 54:2) is situated in the north Negev, 17 km NE to Be'er Sheva. This Local Council, one of the 'red roof and private garden' communities that became popular in the last two decades, was established in 1984, Local Council since 1987, and has 5,200 inh. The unofficial flag is the emblem on a monochrome field. I drew it as white with a multicoloured emblem but I wouldn't be surprised to see only an outlined emblem on various backgrounds. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), 'Publications Gazette' section (Yalkut HaPirsumim), YP 3982, 12 March 1992.

In my visit in Meitar, there were no flags whatsoever. Therefore, the flag above is only probable.
