GYE NYAME
"except for God" symbol of the supremacy of God

This unique and beautiful symbol is ubiquitous in Ghana. It is by far the most popular for use in decoration, a reflection on the deeply religious character of Ghanaian people.

If you look closely at the symbol you can see that it shows a person inside of a hand. It is a picture of how we are held in the hand of God.

Another translation of the gye nyame symbol is this: This great panorama of creation dates back to time immemorial; no one lives who saw its beginning and no one will live to see its end, EXCEPT GOD.
