The palm-wine bottle is never empty - the Asafo Company is never lacking.


This flag depicts two members fetching palm wine from a bottle with their bowls.

In Akan culture, palm wine holds cultural and social significance. It is often consumed during social gatherings, ceremonies, and festivals. It is considered a traditional drink that brings people together and is used to celebrate special occasions.

This original flag is from the Tuafo (No. 2) Asafo Company of Enyan Abaasa and was used at the Akwambo festival processions from the 1940s.


Made between the 1940s - 50s by Kweku Kakanu at the Saltpond workshop in Ghana.
