Overview

Two different, yet quite analogous pages of the Oromo Wikipedia seem to give contradicting information about the word "flag" in Oromo: In the page about Ethiopia it is "bandirra", yet in the page about Oromia it is "allaba". Curiously, both appear to have evident etymologies, from external influence: "bandirra" comes from the large tree rooted at late Latin *"bandarius", either through Italian, Portuguese, Arabic or Swahili, while "allaba" shares a common etym (Arabic?) with unrelated and distant languages such as Kurdish or Chuvash.
