GHANA, Scots International School

20 Dec

We welcome another Country from Africa to join the International Peace Quilt Project. A big thank you to the young people from Scots International School in Ghana for this drawing.

                   ” The World without Peace is like a broken Heart.”

It was great to have the chance of a skype call with Tanko the Youth Leader who coordinated the project for Ghana, with some of the students and the Head. Though the connection wasn`t great it was good to speak. Also thank you very much to Alison Gunusen for helping us with a contact for this Country.

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.
