Emblem adopted 16th April 1959
Regional Council Eshkol is situated in north west Negev desert, was founded in 1951 as Hevel Ma'on and changed its name in 1969 and named after the third Prime Minister of Israel Levy Eshkol. The Regional Council unites 29 settlements with 11,000 inh.
The Regional Council sent me a real flag, blue with a black emblem, and the official who sent it said the original emblem was brown-white, and nowadays it appears as white on green on official papers. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), YP 663, 16 April 1959, for the then Regional Council Hevel Ma'on. It includes an ear of wheat, furrels and a piece of barbed wire.
