The current flag of the President of Ghana, as it is being used ( The star atop the gold disc is blue in same background colour as the flag (rather than black in the initial flag). Concentric circles and crosses are no longer present in the disc.

Earlier version of the flag

The design of the flag from the 1950s is re-created here using a scan from BR20. In this the field looks to be of a lighter blue than currently used, and the flag contains the black star, cross, and concentric circles.

Blue with two eagles holding a disc looking like a shooting target with Teuton cross in the middle and a black star above. Over the emblem it is written ’PRESIDENT’ and under it in two rows ’OF THE REPUBLIC OF GHANA’.

Smith [smi75b] says regarding the Presidential flag: "The flag is composed of authentic Ghanaian symbols, meaning sovereignty, good luck and sanctity." Therefore this “Teuton cross’ has apparently here nothing to do with German symbolism. The proportions are "approximately 7:12", precisely like in the image above.

National flag as president's flag

Two days ago I watched a British (?) TV documentary [Ghana: Presidential , from Discovery Channel, by Forrest Sawyer, 2005] made in 2005 set in Ghana, showing a a couple of interesting flag scenes. The most important thing in this film was some footage of an interview to President Kufuor, in his office, where on the background was partly (but undoubtedly) visible the blue flag with large yellow and red emblem with two eagles.

The Album 2000 [pay00] presents a fringed national flag as the presidential flag of Ghana. Regardless of the use that a fringed national flag may have, even if reserved in exclusivity for the President in some situations (car flag, rank ensign etc.), it is clear that the blue flag is in use, and it can only be the Presidential flag (especially since it is written on it!).
António Martins-Tuválkin, 3 December 2006

The Album 2000 [pay00] has a note at the national flag image explaining that the presidential flag is the same, only with golden fringe.
