I had the opportunity to see the yellow on green flag (in
vertical form) during TV reports on the local basketball team.
However, It seems that Giv'at Shmuel had changed its flag or had a previous flag combined of the municipal emblem on "national" background as appeared in now defunct photos at the municipal site.
