The Gye Nyame symbol is probably the best known Adinkra symbol from Ghana. It means “except for God” and signifies the all-knowing power of God.  It is a reflection of the religious character of the Ghanaian people.

The Adrinka symbols do more than prove that the Africans had a writing system of their own that transmitted highly sophisticated cultural and spiritual ideas and concepts. They may also prove that the Akan People also had an advanced knowledge of astronomy and astro-physics and depicted that knowledge in their beautiful symbols that they used to adorn themselves, their clothing and their buildings.
