Ghana, 20th Century

Asafo flag in cotton applique patterns. 

Asafo Flags are created by the Fante people of Ghana. The flags are visual representations of military organisations in Fante communities known as “Asafo”. The communities each have their own flag, name and number. The primary role of the “Asafo” and their flags was to exert power, political influence and maintain codes of conduct within Fante communities.
