Regional Council Hevel Yavne (Yavne Region) is named after the
old town of Yavne (see also: Gan Yavne) and was established in 1950.
It is situated in the south shore plain and got 3,600 inh. in 6
settlements and 2,000 pupils in the many education institutes in
this area. The Regional Council reports that it has no large
flags [for hoisting] but only a desk flag. However the design of
the desk flag as a emblem on national background brought me to
draw a putative flag.
Source: letter from Mr. E. Greenwald, Regional Council Clerk and treasurer; desk flag.

The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot),
YP 690, 30 July 1959.

The Regional Council govern 8 entities: five settlements:
Kvutzat Yavne, Bet Gamli'el, Ben Zakay, Bene Darom and Nir Galim,
and three religious education institutes: Bet Raban (Giv'at
Washington), Kerem BeYavne and Neve Herzog.
A photo at <www.hevel-yavne.org.il> confirms that the flag has the same pattern as the desk flag, emblem on national background..
