Local Council Rame is situated in Galilee, north to Acre-Zefat road (road 85), about 5 km from Karmi'el on the feet of Mount Khayder (meaning lion mount). It was the first village to recieve the right for self governing in 1923.
I spotted a white flag with green emblem on the city hall. The municipal emblem has not been published in the official gazette (Rashumot) and is thus unofficial.

It is costumery to see Rame as keeping the name of the ancient Jewish town of Rama. According to local tradition, the current village was founded in the 17th century and was one of the biggest villages in the Galilee during the Ottoman era and had the largest olive plants during the Mandate era. Local Council since 1954 with population of 7,300 (2003) of which 51% Christians, 29 % Druze and the rest Moslems.
