From Filcher (1984):

Princely States of Central India, Southern States Agency, Present-day Madhya Pradesh
11 gun salute
Area: 2, 165
Acceded to the Union of India on June 15, 1948, Founded in 1437 by Anand Deo
"The flag of the Principality of Alirajpur for state usage is composed of six red and six white bands, alternatively, with the red band starting at the top. These two colors symbolize the alliance of the Sovereigns of the Principality of Alirajpur and the Holkar Kingdom of Indore. The princely flag of Indore returns that same sentiment."
