N.B. the inscription below the arms should be semicircular
Coat-of-arms adopted 28th February 1963
Nesher (meaning eagle, named after a cement factory
whose workers' quarters were the basis for the town foundation),
is situated on the NW slopes of Mount Carmel about 5 km west of Haifa. Established in 1925, it has
22,000 inh. and became a Local Council in 1952 and a municipality
The flag above the town hall shows the municipal emblem on a white panel on an orange field. The inscription below the emblem should be semicircular. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), YP 997, 28 February 1963, for the then Local Council. The official emblem has still got the Local Council inscription on it, since it was never replaced after it was upgraded to municipality in 1995.
