Part of the SNNPR was incorporated into newly created Sidama Regional State on 18 June 2020 following a referendum in the Sidama Zone in 2019.

The image above is according to Flagmaster nr. 93 (Spring 1999) [fLm]
which shows the flag of the SNNPR as being three equal horizontal stripes of
blue, white and red, with the State emblem in the centre. Other sources
show a different flag ratio, and variations in the colour and shape of the central emblem.
