WELCOME THO THE BLOG ABOUT GHANA!
HERE, YOU WILL LEARN MANY THINGS ABOUT THE COUNTRY CALLED GHANA SO ENJOY!


CURRENCY

In Ghana, our main currency we use is the CEDIS(notes) and the PESEWAS(coins).

Funfact: To find out if the note is real, hold it up to sunlight and look for a hidden man at the left side. Voila!


THE FLAG

GHANA'S FLAG WAS DESIGNED BY A WOMAN NAMED 'MRS. THEODOSIA SALOME OKOH.' THE FLAG HAS FOUR(4) COLOURS WHICH STAND FOR SOMETHING.

THE RED MEANS THE BLOOD SHED BY OUR FOREFATHERS IN THE FIGHT TO GAIN GHANA'S INDEPENDENCE FROM THE BRITISH.
THE YELLOW MEANS THE RICH MINERAL RESOURCES GHANA CAN BOAST OF. E.G: GOLD, IRON, MANGANESE, BAUXITE,DIAMOND ETC.
THE GREEN MEANS THE FRESH VEGETATION YOU CAN FIND IN GHANA.
THE BLACK STAR STANDS FOR THE HOPE OF AFRICA.

Funfact: GHANA WAS THE FIRST AFRICAN COUNTRY TO GAIN INDEPENDENCE.
THE NATIONAL ANTHEM

THE LYRICS OF THE NATIONAL ANTHEM WERE ORIGINALLY COMPOSED BY PHILIP GBEHO BUT NOW WE USE THE ONE COMPOSED BY MICHAEL KWAME GBORDZOE.
HERE ARE THE LYRICS:


First stanza


God bless our homeland Ghana

And make our nation great and strong,
Bold to defend forever
The cause of Freedom and of Right;
Fill our hearts with true humility,
Make us cherish fearless honesty,
And help us to resist oppressors' rule

With all our will and might for evermore.

Second stanza


Hail to thy name, O Ghana,

To thee we make our solemn vow:
Steadfast to build together
A nation strong in Unity;
With our gifts of mind and strength of arm,
Whether night or day, in the midst of storm,
In every need, whate'er the call may be,

To serve thee, Ghana, now and evermore.

Third stanza


Raise high the flag of Ghana

and one with Africa advance;
Black star of hope and honour
To all who thirst for liberty;
Where the banner of Ghana freely flies,
May the way to freedom truly lie;
Arise, arise, O sons of Ghana land,

And under God march on for evermore!
