Nea Onnim
Aya Nea Onnim No Sua A, Ohu "He who does not know can know from learning". This is the Andinkra symbol of knowledge, life-long education and continued quest for knowledge. The Akan believe that the search for knowledge is a life-long process. This is evident from the Akan saying "Nea onnim sua a, ohu; nea odwen se onim dodo no, se ogyae sua a, ketewa no koraa a onim no firi ne nsa" which translates into "He who does not know can become knowledgeable from learning; he who thinks he knows and ceases to continue to learn will stagnate".
