The word khaki actually comes from a word that means "soil-coloured". It's generally means a yellow-brown colour (so more of a beige).
But khaki has been used for military uniforms around the world, and different places choose different shades for camouflage. In the early 1900s, the British chose a darker, more green hue of khaki, which eventually started to be called "olive drab".1
