ELMINA FISH MARKET, CAPE COAST GHANA – 0666

IMG_5766

This region is considered the heartbeat of Ghana tourism because of its wealth of beaches, forts and castles and festivals. The twin towns of Cape Coast and Elmina provide a clear focal point for tourists. In the span of 15 km one can find five castles and forts that shaped not only Ghana’s history but that of the world over four centuries as the focus of first the gold trade and then the slave trade. They are a significant symbol of European-African encounters and of the starting point of the African Diaspora.This is also a logical base for trips to other destinations like Kakum National Park, one of the most diverse and best preserved national parks in West Africa. After a day of sight-seeing see Cape Coast become alive when food stands start popping up and locals start to chat, eat and dance under the stars.

GHANA FLAG _ 0378

The flag of Ghana was designed and adopted in 1957 and was flown until 1959, and then reinstated in 1966. It consists of the Pan-African colours of red, yellow, and green, in horizontal stripes, with a black five-pointed star in the centre of the gold stripe. The Ghanaian flag was the first African flag after the flag of Ethiopia to feature these colours.
