Have you ever thought about who actually Designed our Ghana Flag?
We all go about, representing our country in diverse ways, but have we thought about who actually sat down and took their precious time to intricately and perfectly design our; Beautiful Flag GHANA?
Well, let me inform YOU……….
According to wikipedia,
*The Ghana Flag was designed by Mrs. Theodosia Okoh to replace the flag of the United Kingdom upon attainment of independence in 1957.
*The Ghana Flag was flown until 1959, and then reinstated in 1966.
*It consists of the Pan-African colours of red, yellow, and green, in horizontal stripes, with a black five-pointed star in the centre of the gold stripe.
*The Ghanaian flag was the first African flag after the flag of Ethiopia to feature these colours.
-The red represents the blood of those who died in the country’s struggle for independence,
-The gold represents the mineral wealth of the country,
The green symbolises the country’s rich forests and natural wealth,
& The black star stands for the lodestar of African freedom.
The black star was adopted from the flag of the Black Star Line, a shipping line incorporated by Marcus Garvey that operated from 1919-1922, also proudly giving the Ghana national football team their nickname The Black Stars.
So we should be able to Fly High Our Ghanaian Flag, but to proudly Fly it High knowing what’s behind the colours, and acknowledge and have in mind the Designer. So if someone asks you about what the paint slats of your Me FiRi Ghana Top or Ghana Flag means, You know what to say!
I believe us Ghanaians are just blessed, I mean Mrs. Theodosia Okoh, designed The Perfect Flag for our Nation, The Ghana Flag was meant to be, and Mrs. Theodosia Okoh was gifted as well as talented, with the minds, and ideology of creating a masterpiece simple yet Powerful ..
