Palestine/Israel: emblem pin of the city of Holon, circa. 1946-1950s; not maker-marked; size: 15.5 x 20.5mm; weight: 1.65g. Holon was founded in 1940, as a union of five existing neighborhoods, and became a regional council; in 1950 it became a city, but in between, in 1946 an emblem for Holon was chosen - a design by Shoshana Berlin, created already in 1937. The emblem bears at top a quotation from the song 'Eretz Israel' (1929 - written at the time of the Arab disturbances) by David Shimoni: "Nevertheless and Despite Everything".
