Regional Council Gderot is situated north to Ashdod-Gedera road (road 41) and it is named after Gedera, a city in Judah tribe estate (Joshua 15,14 - see also Local Council of Gadera) which also gave it the lion in its emblem (Judah's symbol). Est. 1953, pop. 3,250. In my visit there was no flag. I was told the logo on several bedsheets is used on occasions. I drew the flag as green (the emblem main colour) with emblem, but this flag is only probable. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot, Yalkut ha-Pirsumim), YP 633, 13 November 1958.

I had one more visit but still no flag to report.
According to <www.gderot.com>, the ides for the emblem of "Juda lion cub" came from the position of the Regional Council in Juda tribe estate. See also: Flags of the Tribes of Israel.
The Regional Council governs seven settlements (Gan HaDarom, Kefar Aviv, Kefar Mordekhai, Meishar, Misgav Dov, Aseret and Shdema).
