Many are yet to understand why Kotoko decided to inculcate tradition into the design of their jersey.
Adinkra symbols have decorative functions but also represent objects that encapsulate evocative messages that convey traditional wisdom and aspects of life.
Below is the meaning and the rationale behind why those Adinkra symbols were chosen.
Gye Nyame- Supremacy of God
Sankofa- Learning from your past
Ohene Adwa- Royalty | Kingship
Nkyinkyim– Dynamism | Versatility
Nea Onnim no sua a Ohu- Lifelong Learning and Knowledgeable
Funtunfunefu Denkyemfunefu – Unity in Diversity | Democracy
