Local Council Efrata (also known as Efrat) was established in 1983 and its name is taken from the bible (Derekh Efrata [Efrata Way/Road] Genesis 38,19 -  the name of the site in which Our Mother Rachel was buried), and thats due to its position between Bethlehem and Hebron (Judea and Samaria District). Local Council since 1980 with 7.000 inh. (2003).
At one can see the municipal emblem and here, you can see photo of the municipal flag.
The emblem is symbolic and one can see trees, furrows and red-roof house as well the Tomb of Rachel and inscription.
The flag is white and charged with the emblem.
