'Asafo' door ernst-gerhard guse.

Fahnen aus Ghana

The fante (often spelt fanti) people live along the coast of ghana to the west of accra in fishing villages such as anomabu, saltpond, mankessim, and elmina, and in the town of cape coast. Elmina was the site of the first major european settlement in west africa with the construction of st.george's castle by the portuguese in 1492. Over the centuries that followed the region was a centre for slave trading and the fante became key intermediaries between the slavers and the peoples of the interior such as the asante. Asafo "companies" developed as military organisations of young men in the fante villages, adopting flags and other european-inspired regalia which they gradually modified for local use. As well as defending the village against local enemies and incursions by the asante, the two or more companies in each community developed intense local rivalries, which were acted out during festivals and other ceremonial occasions. The active fighting role of the asafo companies ended with the british colonial takeover late in the nineteenth century, but they remain key associations in the ritual life of fante villages.
