Janis Lasmanis found a possible flag for Nagar (Nagir) Princely State
(Pakistan) to 1974, In a photo one can see the small red and gold arms of the
former princely state, and the modern larger flag of the local Nagar area. The
adoption is unsure, but the state was abolished in 1974. The flag should be
listed as the "possible" flag.
A short timeline:
13__ (14th cent.) Nagar (Nagir) state founded.
1877 - 1947 Under suzerainty (sub-state) of Jammu and Kashmir (tributary already from 1868).
1889 British protectorate.
19 Nov 1947 Nagar declares its accession to Pakistan.
25 Sep 1974 State extinguished, part of Northern Areas (modern Gilgit-Baltistan).
