 Libāna on Latvian Wikipedia
Libāna (Āzijā)
Libānas karogs



Via other European languages, ultimately a borrowing from some Semitic language, based on the Semitic stem لبن (l-b-n, white; milk), probably a reference to the snow-capped Mount Lebanon. The word itself is very old, being already found in sources from the 3rd millennium BCE (including the Epic of Gilgamesh).
