The flag of Ghana is a horizontal tricolor of red, gold, and green stripes, with a black five-pointed star in the center of the gold stripe. It was designed in 1957 by Theodosia Okoh, a Ghanaian artist, and adopted upon the independence of the Dominion of Ghana on March 6 of that year.
The flag's design was inspired by the Pan-African colors of red, yellow, and green, which were also used in the flag of the Ethiopian Empire. The flag of Ghana was the second African flag to feature these colors, although they are inverted in the Ghanaian flag.
The flag of Ghana was in use until 1964, when it was replaced by a new design. It was reinstated in 1966 and has been in use ever since. The design of the Ghanaian flag also influenced the flag of Guinea-Bissau, which was adopted in 1973.
