Ghana hosts 50th birthday party

The most striking aspect of Ghana's independence celebrations was the ubiquity of three colours - red, gold and green.
The hues, which along with a black star make up the nation's flag, can be seen virtually everywhere.

Flags have been draped from most buildings, across car bonnets and on lampposts, while the three hues can also be seen on wristbands, trees, T-shirts, and, in some cases, face and body paint.
Amidst this multi-coloured backdrop, revellers took to the streets to welcome the country's birthday at midnight on 6 March and Kumasi was not left out.
