Palanpur State had its own flag. Whenever the army went to war, or the king led a procession, the flag would fly at the front as a symbol of the state.

The Lohani Nawabs of Palanpur used the Crest of Palanpur state even when they ruled Jhalore. The crest was created by British company Murray and Wary, and has an Arabic inscription, which translates to: ?With wisdom we took, with sword we protected?.

Whenever the State sent out an official message, or conducted an act of charity, or signed an agreement, the royal seal would accompany the King?s authorized signature, otherwise the document would not be considered legal.
