Simeon was the second son of Jacob and Leah. The Hebrew meaning of his name is "God has heard that I was unloved." (Genesis 29:33) He and his brother Levi destroyed the entire village of Shechem in retribution for the rape of their sister Dinah. (Genesis 34) Simeon was a part of the plot to sell his brother Joseph into slavery.

The tribe of Simeon lived in the southernmost part of the Land of Israel.

Simeon's banner (flag) was green. His emblem was the Shecham city. His gem was topaz/ the animals on the window do not face each other. This signifies disquiet, tension.

JACOB'S PROPHECIES
"Simeon and Levi are brothers; their swords are weapons of violence. Let me not enter their council, let me not join their assembly, for they have killed men in their anger and hamstrung oxen as they pleased. Cursed be their anger, so fierce, and their fury, so cruel! I will scatter them in Jacob and disperse them in Israel." (Genesis 49:5-7)
