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.

A variant of the flag found at, where it is described as 'The Flag Of The Bhati Jadaun Rulers Of Jaisalmer". The image here was drawn after a photo of the flag flying over the fort of Jaisalmer.
