Haifa Coat of arms

Haifa Coat-of-arms (blue-white-red) on azure bedsheet. Originally the English name was in the middle of the coat-of-arms, but it was changed (sometime in the 60's) after Israel's independence and the Hebrew name was moved to the center. I cannot tell how official is the flag, however, it has been used as such for at least the last 40 years or so. Haifa is the third largest city in Israel and the capital of Haifa District. It is situated in the north part of Israel, on the slopes of Mount Carmel and on the shore of the Mediterranean Sea. It is Israel's main harbour. Pop. 250,000.
