The State of Kotah has a swallow-tailed red fled with the "Garuda" in the center; two flags are used with differing dimensions.

The Kotah state flag has a Garuda - a mythical bird or vulture, half-man, half-bird, on which Vishnu (supreme God of the Hindus) rides. He is the king of birds, a great enemy of serpents. He is represented as having the head, wings, talons and beak of an eagle, and the body and limbs of a man.
