With the end of World War I in December 1918, the first lands were purchased. Year after year, additional land was purchased for the construction of a “city of gardens”. In April 2, 1923, a new and comprehensive name was established for the place – Ramat Gan.
The settlement was initially a moshav, agricultural colony that grew wheat, barley and watermelons. However, this type of settlement was not suited to the nature and aspirations of the local residents.
The cooperative moshav became an urban settlement and in 1926 was recognized by the British Mandate authorities as a local council. There were about 450 people.
In 1946 the population was approximately 12,000.
In 1950, Ramat Gan was declared a city, and by 1955 it had a population of 62,000.
