Jharkhand state

Several areas in India have successfully sought to be set off from their former states and established as new states of India. There has also been mention that several of those quests were successful, and new states have been created. One of them is Jharkhand, an area formerly in southern Bihar state and neighboring areas. Its traditional inhabitants are Munda and Dravidian tribesmen, although now many other Indians also live there. I do not know what role flags from times before statehood play in the newly created Indian state of Jharkhand.

Chota Nagpur Plateau Praja Parishad

[Chota Nagpur Plateau Praja Parishad] by Dirk Schönberger

Nations Without States has an entry from before Jharkhand's statehood. One flag is described as that of the largest national movement, a horizontal tricolor of green, white, green. On the white stripe is centered a red disk. From the line drawing it appears that the disk's diameter is 2/3 of the stripe's height. The flag's ratio is 2:3 (as are all the ones shown in "Nations Without States", unless otherwise specified).

Jharkhand Mukti Morcha

[Jharkhand Mukti Morcha] by Dirk Schönberger, based on Flag Report 12

The second flag cited in Nations Without States is called the flag of Jharkhand Mukti Morcha, the largest nationalist group. It is a green flag with a white rooster in the center.

This flag was reported (by Flaggenmitteilung I believe) as flag of the party Chota Nagpur Plateau Praja Parishad.
