About Our Logo
The official Global Ghana Airlines logo is very important to us. The symbolism behind the logo is simple, yet significant. Considering our roots and hub of operations (Accra, Ghana), we wanted to capture the rich history and culture of Ghana. The colors of the Ghanaian flag were selected as the primary colors for the design. Red symbolizes the blood shed for independence, yellow signifies the country's mineral wealth, while green represents Ghana’s forests and natural wealth. The design itself is comprised of a Tawney Eagle in flight – simultaneously serving as a natural symbol for aviation, as well as a reference to the Tawney Eagle, as found in Ghana’s National Coat of Arms.
