A national flag is a flag that signifies and symbolizes a particular country or territory. Flags are available in a variety of sizes, styles, and designs, each of which indicates something specific about the country or people that the flag represents.
The Ghanaian flag is a multicolored flag consisting of three colors: red, gold, and green, which are arranged in a sequential manner. The colors are a depiction of the country’s struggle for independence as well as a symbol of the country’s abundant natural riches, which are a result of the country’s geographical placement amid other African countries.
A star in the sky fashioned in a black color within the center, taking up the majority of the gold color’s center coverage, makes for a striking combination of colors.
