Local Council of Bet Zarzir - Emblem approved in YP 5151 of 26

Zarzir is the official name while the locals call it also Bet
Zarzir as appear also at the municipal website.
The name come from the bird Zarzir (starling) which were attracted to this area and its olive trees.
Still no flag at the city hall.....
