A GOLDEN NEST
Every dawn brings gold, red like a chorus life. We’ve all been made green to touch the stars.
Yet once more.

Flag of Ghana
The Meaning of the Flag
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.
