Emblem adopted 11th February 1990
Local Council Bine (Be'ene) is situated north to Acre-Zefat road, 17 km east to Acre and 3 km NW to Karmi'el . A Local Council since 1975 with 5,800 inh., mostly Muslims. The Local Council wrote me (my translation, remarks in brackets):
The authority has an official flag [meaning an emblem] which was approved by the council on 14 May 1984 in council meeting no. 9, and was published in the Rashumot [official gazette] on 11 February 1990, in YP [Yalkut HaPirsumim or 'Publications Gazette' section] 3741 p. 1767. Note: the authority flag [again meaning the emblem] is green, the place shown is an holy place in the village and a symbol of building stone walls.
The flag is really white with the green emblem.

According to the list of united or dissolved local authorities
published in the official gazette (Rashumot), section Sefer
HaHukim 1897, 5 August 2003, Local Council Bine has been
united with Local Councils Majd Al-Kurum
and Deir Al-Asad to form a new Local
Council whose name has not yet been determined. The
Local Council's symbols are now obsolete.
