Local Council Gan Yavne is situated on the main road between Tel-Aviv and Ashqelon
(road no. 4). It was established in 1931, pop. 8,000. Gan Yavne
(meaning Yavne Garden) is named after the old city of Yavne, in
ancient times a major Jewish religious centre which later became
a major crusader fort (Iblin). Gan Yavne has got an official
emblem which includes two oranges and a lemon, field and houses
placed on a Torah shape inside a white 'T' shape on a
green background. (...) Gan Yavne has got no official flag. In
case of need it uses the emblem on a green field.

In my visit, I found out that the flag at the city hall is
orange and charged with the emblem. The green flag is used,
probably, only for the desk flag.
