In my opinion, the shade of saffron in Baroda and Gwalior is the same (as is generally the case in these saffron monocolor flags because of their same origin).
Jaume Ollé, 23 March 1998
Here is an incomplete list of the territories that composed Baroda:
Baroda was a former Indian state in western India, 8176 square miles; it had four divisions, three in Gujarat (Kadim, Baroda, and Navsari) and one in the Peninsula of Kathiawar (Amreli, with Okhamandal). Once a part of the Mogul Empire; in 18th century its princes belonged to Maratha Confederacy; c. 1721 it secured part of Gujarat; in 19th century subject to British administrative control until 1881; became part of Bombay state 1948 and of Gujarat state 1960. Title of the prince: Gaekwar.
