Regional Council of Mevoot HaHermon (Hermon Gateways) spreads over the Hula Valley toward the Galilee Panhandle and the Lebanese border in the north. In the south, the council's settlements reach the Sea of Galilee. It was seperated from Regional Council of HaGalil HaElyon in 1976. The Regional Council unites 13 settlements with 5,000 inh.
It has no official flag and in case of need it uses an emblem on orange background.
Source: regional council website, author's own observation 18 September 2001.
The emblem of Mevoot Hermon has not been formally adopted.

Regional Council of Mevoot HaHermon govern 13 communities - Moshav's, farms and other communities: (Elipelet, Amnun, Bet Hilel, Dishon, Yuval, Korazim, Kakhal, Karkom, Margali'yot, Mishmar Ha'Yarden, Ramot Naftali, She'ar Yeshuv and Sde Eliezer).
Those were separated from Regional Council of HaGalil HaElyon (which kept all the Kibbutz's), and therefore both Regional Councils have no internal territorial sequence of their jurisdictions.
I reported an orange flag at my visit, but it seems that more colors are in use such as the light blue variant seen at <www.mevoot-hermon.org.il>.

Sde Eliezer (meaning Eliezer Field) is a Moshav (kind of rural settlements in Israel) and as such has no status of local authority, belonging to the Regional Council Mevo'ot Hermon. Sde Eliezer is situated in the Upper Galilee, just on the other side of the main road from Yesod HaMa'ala.
Usually these small settlements have no flags, so it was quite a surprise to see this settlement well decorated by flags of different colours charged with a logo really a stylized inscription of the Moshav's name. During my visit of 18 September 2001, I saw green, purple and red flags with a white logo, blue flags with a yellow logo and white and yellow flags with blue logo. I took these pictures of the row of flags at the Moshav entrance and a close up of one of them.
