Parigi

image provided by John D McMeekin, 11 December 2013

A photo of the flag shows that the centre of the flag is complicated, nearly as complicated as the old Sikkim flag.
The present Ruler is the 19th Magau, Y.M. (for Yang Mulia or His Highness) Andi Cimbu Tagunu, ruling since 2000.
John D McMeekin, 11 December 2013

The arms are a green octagon bearing crossed swords and a red-black-yellow-white shield. The coat of arms looks like being modern, the colours above I would take to mean that those are the colours of their flag, in vertical form, red/black/golden-yellow/white.  Parigi State is located on The Celebes or Sulawesi Island, and it was small. Two of the most powerful Sultanates were Gowa and Bone, or Boni, both located on the Southern
arm near Makasser.
