Ziggioto (1998) has "zafferano su porpora" -
saffron red over purple, proportions 2:3, and in the center a white parasol,
with yellow fillings, and with purple and golden ornaments.

On the fort of Jaisalmer in 2004 there was hoisted a horizontal bicolor in
yellow over red. In the middle of the flag the picture of a sunshade-umbrella (=chhatri)
was superimposed in inverted colours of the field. I suppose, it is the personal
flag of HRH Maharawal SHREE BHEEJRAJ SINGH JI. (Maharawal is the official title
of the local Maharaja in Jaisalmer). My supposition is indicated by the fact,
that nowhere else in the city there is any flag. The measurements of the flag
are: breadth 5 / height 3.
