FLAGS OF RAJPUTANA

Such is the incredible repression unleashed against the Rajputs in Brahmin-Controlled India that the Rajputs are even forbidden from flying their ancestral flags. This act is considered a civil offence. Thus, the Flags of the World website notes that -

" ... the princely flags are banned. State flags for the modern Indian states do not exist save for Jammu and Kashmir. ... The "ex-princely" families still use the flags, although the central government doesn't like it ... Most of the residences of the ex-rulers still fly the State flag, for example Gwalior or Jaipur, those rulers who still own their "houses" in New Delhi ... None of this is legal, as such."

In this context it is to be noted that the Indian flag does not even represent the Rajputs as there is no yellow color symbolising the Sun. It is the duty of every Rajput to continue the usage of his ancestral flags and to proudly continue the Rajput tradition. As part of this effort, the RLFS here provides some of the historical Rajput flags, flags for which the ancient Rajput would gladly give his life.

The original flag of Jaipur in 1877 contains a Sun to represent the Saura-Saka religion of the Rajputs and a yellow band to further emphasise that heritage. It is is depicted below -
