Jerusalem Day / Yom Yerushalayim 2014

The municipal emblem of Jerusalem contains the following symbols: the lion, shown rampant, representing the lion of Judah, a background representing the Western (Wailing) Wall; and the olive branch, representing peace. The Hebrew inscription above the crest is Yerushalayim (Jerusalem, also known as Zion).

Israelis fill the streets of Jerusalem to rejoice on Yom Yerushalayim.

"But upon mount Zion (Yerushalayim) shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob (Israel, the Jewish people) shall possess their possessions (repossess their rightful inheritance)." Obadiah 1:17
