Friday Born: Ghana, Power, Culture, & Relevance


The Designer of the Ghana Flag: Mrs. Theodora Salome Okoh

There was an Ad in the local newspaper calling for a design of the National Flag for Ghana. “The Flag should be original and must have motifs the many nationals can identify with”.

I decided on the three colors of red, gold & green because of the geography of Ghana . Ghana lies in the tropics and blessed with rich vegetation. The color Gold was influenced by the mineral rich nature of our lands and Red commemorates those who died or worked for the country’s independence. Then the five pointed lone star which is the symbol of African emancipation and unity in the struggle against colonialism.

“Friday Born” explores the meaning of cultural identity through the experience of a young woman in Ghana, West Africa.
