Gye Nyame is arguably the most popular Adinkra symbol and expresses the deep faith the Akans have in the Supreme Being. The following names and titles given to the Supreme Being illustrate how he is perceived in Akan thought: Onyame or Nyame, meaning the one who satisfies; Onyankopɔn or Nyankopon, meaning the unique and great one; and Twereduampɔn, meaning the great dependable one.
AKOBEN- “war horn,” symbolizing loyalty, devotion and service. Akoben is a wind instrument used in summoning warriors to the battlefield. It signifies alertness and readiness to serve a good cause. Seeing this symbol is supposed to encourage people to be ready at all times to serve their nations even in times of war. It also stresses loyalty to ones nation.
According to an Asante (Ghana) legend Adinkra was the name of a king of the Gyaman (Nana kofi Adinkra). Adinkra was a wise leader who fought for his kingdom & was eventually killed in a battle. The tradition had it that Adinkra patterned was worn as a way of saying Farewell to the great king.
The Asante people around the 19th century then took to painting of traditional symbols of the Gyamans onto cloth, a tradition that was well practiced by the latter.
Adinkra took the meaning of “Great Passing” in Twi the language of the Akan ethnic group of which Asante is a part of. It has therefore been the tradition of the Akan especially the Asante to wear cloths decorated with Adinkra symbols on important occasions.
Today, the Adinkra cloth is not exclusively worn by the Asante people. It is worn by other ethnic groups in Ghana on a variety of social gatherings and festive occasions
The Adinkra symbols express various themes that relate to the history, beliefs and philosophy of the Asante. They mostly have rich proverbial meaning since proverbs play an important role in the Asante culture. The use of Proverbs is considered as a mark of wisdom.
Other Adinkra symbols depict historical events, human behaviour and attitudes, animal behaviour, plant life forms and shapes.
