Indian states officially do not have flags of their own, except for Jammu and Kashmir. However, some unofficial flags have been reported:

  • Andhra Pradesh: green with a map of the state in yellow in the center
Jaume Ollé, 23 November 1996

The image of Andhra is wrong according to Flag Bulletin. The map is different and covers only a part of the state.
Jaume Ollé, 8 June 1999

If the map covers only a part of the state it certainly can't be a state flag, even if unofficial. Are you sure of this?
Antonio Martins, 17 June 1999

In Flags of Aspirant Peoples this flag is labelled as "Andhra (Jai Andhra movement) - Andhra Pradesh" It is more likely a revendicative or separatist flag.
Ivan Sache, 16 Sep 1999

I believe that it is not a state flag, but a secessionist flag.
Jaume Ollé, 27 June 1999

In Andhra Pradesh, the only new entity listed here is Telegana (the Telegu Desam party).
Antonio Martins, 28 June 1999

The image for Manipur may actually be the flag of the Telegu Desam party that claims the separation of Telingana from Andhra Pradesh
Jaume Ollé, 8 June 1999

Janmabhoomi Movement

[Janmabhoomi Logo] by António Martins


The logo of the JANMA BHOOMI depicted on the flag represents three circular designs harmoniously balanced. The outer circle depicts human chain indicating collective effort, team spirit and development of human resources,which are cardial principles of the JANMA BHOOMI movement. The second circle depicts industrial wheel and two twigs with leaves in green indicating a balanced development of Industrial and Agricultural sectors and prosperity. The sun at the center of the design symbolises a vibrant work culture and all round development of the state. The sun as the universal source of energy also symbolises new horizons and progress by harnessing the sources of energy. The background color of the flag which is blue, is indicative of natural resources which have to be harnessed effectively along with the development of human resources for acheiving the goal of sustained development.
