Local Council Majd Al-Kurum (meaning glory of the
vineyards in Arabic) is situated in Biq'at Bet ha'Kerem
(Vinyard House Valley) on Acre-Zefat road (road 85), 3 km NW to Karmi'el and 17 km east to Acre. A Local
Council since 1964 with 10,000 inh., most of them Muslims. In my
visit I spotted a white flag with yellow emblem; the reverse is
plain white. The municipal emblem was published in the official
gazette (Rashumot), 'Publications Gazette' section (Yalkut
HaPirsumim), YP 2863, 4 November 1982.
