The state name is printed in Takri script of Dogri language as Jammu va Kashmir as marked within the two vertical green lines.



The complete inscription in the top panel is Riyasat Jammu va Kashmir Tibbat Ha i.e. (Feudatory) State Jammu and Kashmir Bod etc.

Here Bod refers the regions of Ladakh and Baltistan which were part of Jammu and Kashmir state.
