Coat-of-arms adopted 8th March 1973
Local Council Pardesiyya (meaning God's citrus plant) is situated in the Sharon region, 3 km south of the Sharon crossroads (Bet Lid Junction) and 5 km east of Netanya . It was founded in 1940, Local Council since 1952 and has 5,000 inh.
When I visited it, the city hall was under construction with no flags and no-one to ask about the municipal emblem. In the entrance to the Local Council there were two flags, one blue with a white emblem and another one orange with a black emblem. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot, Yalkut HaPirsumim), YP 1900, 8 March 1973.

According to the municipal website: "In the emblem appears the water-tower of Pardesiyya which was the first building that was constructed in Pardesiyya in 1940. The Tower still exist toady in its primary shape at the yard of the city hall."
