Description

Tamra is situated in the western Lower Galilee, 20 km southeast of Acre, 30 km northeast of Haifa and 5 km north of Shfar'am. It became a Local Council in 1956 and a municipality in 1996. Its population is 22,000, all Muslims.
During my visit I noticed all the town is decorated in multicolor flags. All of them have the emblem on a monochrome background, with an Arabic inscription above the emblem and a semicircular Hebrew inscription below the emblem. I spotted white emblem on light green, white emblem on dark blue, black emblem on yellow and green emblem on white. My images are a bit inaccurate since the Hebrew inscription should be semicircular. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), YP 1303, 22 September 1966, for the then Local Council Tamra. Source: author's own observation, 17 September 2001.
