Ghana first gained its Independence in March 1957. This symbolised the end of British colonisation and the beginning of freedom.
The fight for Independence was led by Kwame Nkruhmah and the Big Six whose heads you usually see on the paper bill money.
Ghanas flag was also formed at this time. Each colour has a specific meaning behind it.
Red is for the blood that was shed in the struggle for independence
Gold is the mineral wealth that Ghana holds
Green is the land
The Black Star Symbolizes African unity and emancipation.
