Ghana Independence Day

On March 6, 1957, 56 years ago, Ghana became the first African nation to gain independence from a colonial power (the United Kingdom). Modern Ghana is a combination of the former British Togoland (the Volta Region, along the east) and of the colony known as the Gold Coast. The word Ghana means Warrior King, and is derived from the ancient Ghana Empire. Modern Ghana’s motto is “Freedom and Justice."  The national anthem is “God Bless Our Homeland in Ghana," and is sung before the National Pledge of Ghana. As in the United States, Independence Day is Ghana is marked by parades and fireworks. National Pledge of Ghana I promise on my honor to be faithful and loyal to Ghana my motherland.
I pledge myself to the service of Ghana with all my strength and with all my heart.
I promise to hold in high esteem our heritage, won for us through the blood and toil of our fathers; and I pledge myself in all things to uphold and defend the good name of Ghana.
So help me God.
