Regional Council Ef'al was founded in 1950 as Regional Council Ono and changed its name in 1984. It is situated in the centre of Israel, between Ramat Gan in its eastern border, Bar-Ilan University on its north, Tel-ha'Shomer Hospital on the east and Ayalon river on the south. It is one of the smallest Regional Councils and unites only five entities with 5,500 inhabitants.
Its flag is white with green emblem. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot, Yalkut ha-Pirsumim), YP 989, 10 January 1963, for the then Regional Council Ono.
Sources: letter from Mr. Daniel Yosef, Deputy City Clerk/Treasurer, 5 September 2001; desk flag; this webpage. The emblem probably shows a fig-tree leaf.

This small Regional Council made of 4 entities was supposed to be dissolved according to MOTI plan by adding them to existing municipalities. Kfar AZAR, Ramat Ef'al and Neve Ef'al were supposed to be added to Ra?at Gan and Ramat Pinkas was supposed to be added to Or Yehuda. This plan was cancelled, keeping it the smallest Regional Council in Israel."
I visited the city hall today and the flag is yellow.

On 1 March 2007, the Minister of the Interior decided to dissolve Regional Council Ef'al due to its poor financial condition. Kefar Azar and Ramat Ef'al were annexed to Ramat-Gan while Ramat Pinkas was annexed to Or Yehuda. Those symbols are now obsoloete.
