This flag is being raised to remind us of the fact that even though we share in the ecumenical body, we are first and foremost,Christians of the great Methodist tradition. We are proud to have come to faith in Jesus Christ by the gospel preached, taught and practiced by the people called Methodists. A society raised by the power of God to spread scriptural holiness throughout the land. It is therefore important that every Methodist within Diocese, Circuit and Society in the Connexion owns and raises it at the offices and the chapels.
The Gold background symbolizes the richness of our heritage in the glorious hope of Jesus Christ. It also brings to mind that the Methodist heritage handed over to us by our forebears is pure, dependable and worthwhile, and that a strict adherence to it would enable the Methodist seeking faith to cultivate a personal and living faith which leads to Salvation in Jesus Christ.
Again, it reminds us that as we hoist the flag, embossed with the Ghana Methodist emblem, we anticipate the day we would be welcomed to take our place in the city of Gold. The kingdom of God where Christ the Lord reigns supreme.
This is a map of Ghana with the “Nyame Dua”( God’s Tree) symbol in the middle, and embossed with the cross. The cross stretches from the ocean over the upper part of the map and also , goes beyond the East and West borders.
The vertical base of the cross streches into the ocean because Methodism came to us through the sea, that is from England and by ship we brought Rev. Joseph R. Dunwell. In Ghana, we went beyond our borders to share the faith.
The “Nyame Dua” symbol reminds us that before the advent of the missionaries, the concept of God was already known. The missionaries came to help us name the name of Christ. We have the map of Ghana in blue, indicating our anticipating of mankind, the whole of Ghana a nation which has christ as her Lord.
