Ghana flag

Ghana national flag was designed in 1957 by THEODOSIA OKOH and it was adopted within the same year when Ghana attained its independence.

The national flag of Ghana was designed in replacement of the flag of the United Kingdom which was then in use for all the countries which were colonized.

The flag was flown until 1959 and it was then reinstated in 1966.

It consists of the Pan-African colours of red, gold, and green, in horizontal stripes, with a black five-pointed star in the centre of the gold stripe.

The Ghanaian flag was the second African flag after the flag of the Ethiopian Empire to feature these colours. The flag’s design influenced that of the flag of Guinea-Bissau (1973).
