Background

According to the Ethiopian Parliament website, this state "comprises 3 administrative zones, made up of 19 woredas of which two are special woredas (Pawi and Tongo) and 33 Kebeles. Amharic is the working language of the State.  The capital city is Assosa.  The State of Benishangul Gumuz is located in the north-western part of Ethiopia and shares common boundaries in the west with Sudan, in the north-east with the State of Amhara, in the east and south with the State of Oromia."

It has an estimated area of 51,000 square kilometers and a population of 460,459 (1994).  It says nothing about ethnicity, but since they say that the "working language is the Amharic", I suppose that it must be inhabited by Amharas or closely related peoples.

Before the changes of internal borders in Ethiopia, Assosa was an unimportant place (at least in the map) part of the province of Welega.  The city is located very close to the Sudanese border. Other information on the site (the climate zones and the river basins lead me to conclude that this state occupies probably the western half of what once was called Welega.

Flag of Benishangul/Gumuz

The flag of Benishangul/Gamuz is a horizontal tricolour of black, gold and green with a red triangle based at the hoist.  The influence of the Sudanese flag is pretty obvious (it's a rearrangement of the Sudanese colours with white replaced by golden/yellow), suggesting some kind cross-border relationship.
