Overview

"Unancha" means "flag" in Quechua and "electrical signal" in Aymara; the mentioned use of "unancha" in Aymara Wikipedia to mean "flag" seems to have been due to a mistake in the country infobox template that included for some reason (wild copy+paste the Quechua Wikipedia?) an alien word from Quechua, as of 2006.10.

As far as I can tell, "wiphala" is indeed the regular Aymara word for "flag", while "unancha" is the regular Quechua word for "flag". (Evidence of this is the Aymara Wikipedia article about the flag of Bolivia and the Quechua Wikipedia article about flags.)

However, the (Aymara) word "wiphala" is used in Quechua to refer specifically to any of the seven colored Inca flags — both the the rainbow Twantinsuyu flag and any of the 7×7 chequered flags of its nominal “four quarters”. (Evidence of this is the Quechua Wikipedia article about these flags.)
