Oromia, Ethiopia

Oromia, Ethiopia
Few people know that this flag is the only flag to feature a stalk of broccoli. Well, some rare variants of the flag of Brussels, Belgium feature Brussels sprouts, but that’s not the same as broccoli, though they are botanically related.

  1. Haha it is not Brocoli; it was supposed to be a sycamore tree called Odaa in Oromo language which represents a democratic system called Gadaa the Oromos have been practicing for a prety long time.

  2. It clearly looks like broccoli to me… but to my knowledge me being a Borana; As an Ethiopian I’m pretty sure broccoli is not part of our staple foods. You pride yourself with the Gadaa system which governs the Borana People not the Oromo.
