Regional Council Menashe (named after the biblical tribe Manasseh) is situated around Eiron road (road 65), NE to E of Hadera. Est. 1950. Pop. 12,000 in 19 settlements. In my visit I spotted a green flag with black emblem. However the Regional Council sent me a blue desk flag with yellow emblem. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), 'Publications Gazette' section (Yalkut HaPirsumim), YP 1039, p. 28, 2 October 1963.
