In July 1958, Germany deepened its ties with Ghana.
The European country were at some point the colonizers of what is present day Volta and Oti regions.
Hoping to build a stronger diplomatic relationship with the country beating the drums of the pan African struggle, a street in Berlin was named in honour of the newly formed West African country.
Ghana Street, located in the Wedding district of Berlin was dedicated in the presence of young Ghanaians who were in Germany at the time.
Below is a photo of the ceremony in 1958.
Almost 63 years later, the street sign is still there.
A recent photo of the street was shared by the German ambassador to Ghana Christoph Retzlaff.
Happy Independence Day, Ghana.
