The flag of the State of Jagdishpur is shown at
http://www.uq.net.au/%7Ezzhsoszy/ips/j/jagdishpur.html. This state was in

The flag is quartered gold and red, with a central white disk with a black line of a wolf's head(?) surrounded by Hindi script.
Under the British Raj zamindars were large landholders with some governmental
responsibilities but they were not equivalent to the rulers of Princely States.
There were under the direct authority of either the British administration or
one of the actual Princely States.
