Regional Council HaGalil HaTahton (meaning Lower Galilee) is situated in the east side of the Lower Galilee, northeast of Afula and southwest of Tveria (Tiberias). City hall is in Kaduri Centre near Ilaniya and Kefar Tabor. Est. 1951, pop. 8,500.
The unofficial flag was reported as white with the municipal emblem. However when I visited the R.C. I found the flag was yellow with black emblem. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot), YP 1286, 30 June 1966.

It seems that the Regional Council HaGalil HaTakhton uses now only green on yellow as its flag.

This Regional Council govern 17 settlements (Bet Keshet, Bet Rimon, Lavi, Ilaniya (Est 1899), Sharona, Arbel, HaZoreim, Kefar Hitim, Masad, Mitzpe Netofa, Giv'at Avni, Hoda'yot, Kefar Zeytim, Kefar Kish, Mitzpe, Sde Ilan and Shadmot Devorah)
Ilaniya (Ilan means tree) , the first settlement in the area (est in 1899 as an education farm, In 1902 ten of the graduates established the colony nearby) took its name from the former Arabic name Sejera (feminine of tree), hence the oak tree on the emblem. This kind of oak is called Alon HaTabor (Oak of the Tabor) representing also Mount Tabor which is in its jurisdiction.
