Introduction: Governorates

I seem to remember that the flag of each governorate is the logo on a white backgound.
Dirk Schoenberger, 17 Dec 2004

The flags of the governorates are known; see Mello Luchtenberg's Vexilla-Mundi.
Jens Pattke, 01 Jan 2005

"Bahrain is divided into four Governorates: the Capital, Northern, Southern and Muharraq. Until September 2014, there were five, when the Central Governorate was abolished. Each governorate is governed by a Governor, appointed by the Prime Minister, and has its own municipality council, with separate elections for them. The first municipal elections in Bahrain held after independence in 1971, was held in conjunction with the 2002 Bahraini general election. The most recent was held in conjunction with the 2018 Bahraini general election." (source)
Several similar variants of Governorates flags have been in use as shown below.
