FLAGS TO FLY AT HALF MAST


IN HONOUR OF MRS THEODOSIA OKOH

 

Government has confirmed with profound sadness, news of the passing of Mrs Theodosia Okoh, a Stateswoman and designer of our National Flag and extends its sincere condolences to her family.

Government acknowledges Mrs Okoh for her invaluable contributions to our nation building efforts. The instant recognition that our nation receives the world over through the unique flag that she designed for us has cemented her place in history as a colossus of Ghanaian history.

Government also recognizes her contributions to the development of sports in Ghana. She worked tirelessly together with others to promote and grow hockey in the country and will be sorely missed by all in that field.

Her talent, zeal and sense of duty to Ghana will continue to offer inspiration for Ghanaians and serve as a reference point in service to the nation.

In honour of this extraordinary Ghanaian, President John Dramani Mahama has directed that all flags fly at half-mast for three days starting from Tuesday, 21st April, 2015.

Signed:

DR. EDWARD K. OMANE BOAMAH

Minister for Communications
