Local Council I'billin (A'ebilin) is situated in the western Lower Galilee, 15 km SE of Acre and 3 km NE of Shfar'am. Local Council since 1960.
During my visit I spotted two variants of the unofficial municipal flag on the city hall, green with black emblem and orange with black emblem, both with Arabic inscription above and Hebrew inscription below the emblem. The municipal emblem was published in the official gazette (Rashumot, Yalkut ha-Pirsumim), YP 4289, 9 March 1995.
