"Freedom & Justice"
History before the Europeans:
Movements toward political freedom began after WWII. The first Europeans arrived in Ghana in the late 15th century. It took decades to end the trade in slaves. In 1956 the new assembly passed a motion authorizing the government to request independence within the British commonwealth.
Gold Coast was a British colony on the Gulf of Guinea in west Africa that became the independent nation of Ghana in 1957.
