Symbol of the majesty and supremacy of God
The Akoma Adinkra symbol looks exactly like a heart, but it represents more. The akoma “heart” symbol represents patience, goodwill, faithfulness, endurance and tolerance. According to the Agbo people group, when a person is said to “have a heart in his stomach,” that person is very tolerant.
The Akoma symbol is very popular in weddings throughout Ghana, and it’s not hard to see why.
