Tripura was a powerful principality from the 15th century on, until it was invaded by Muslim forces from Bengal. The mountainous area of Tipperah Hills regained independence in 1625, with some English protection; part of it became British in 1765. The state measured 10.500 sq km, with c. 400.000 inhabitants. Tripura's Maharadah's flag was vertical purple and gold, with in the center the state emblem in a white disk; proportions 3:1. Source: Ziggioto (1998)
