Savyon (Hebrew: סַבְיוֹן, Arabic: سفيون) is a local council in the Central District of Israel, bordering the cities of Kiryat Ono, Petah Tikva, and Yehud. Ranked 10/10 on the Israeli socio-economic scale, it is one of the wealthiest municipalities in Israel. In 2017 it had a population of 3,878.
Savyon was founded in 1955 by Africa Israel Investments for senior South African Jewish immigrants. It took the name of a common wildflower, although the first part of its name (sav) means "grandfather", which was appropriate for the residents of the time. Today, Savyon has a young population.
