Description of the flag

The University of Education, Winneba (UEW) was established in September, 1992 as a University College under PNDC Law 322. On 14th May, 2004 the University of Education Act, Act 672 was enacted to upgrade the status of the University College of Education of Winneba to the status of a full University.

The University College of Education of Winneba brought together seven diploma awarding colleges located in different towns under one umbrella institution. These Colleges were the Advanced Teacher Training College, the Specialist Training College and the National Academy of Music, all at Winneba; the School of Ghana Languages, Ajumako; the College of Special Education, Akwapim-Mampong; the Advanced Technical Training College, Kumasi; and the St. Andrews Agricultural Training College, Mampong-Ashanti. The three sites in Winneba now referred to as the Winneba campus is the seat of the Vice-Chancellor with satellite campuses at Kumasi, Mampong and Ajumako. - UEW website

The flag of UEW is white a red triangle placed along the lower left corner and blue triangle placed along the upper right corner, and the university's emblem in the middle.


The principal motif of the University Crest, the “AdinkraNtesie” is a Ghanaian cultural symbol associated with wisdom and knowledge as the essential ingredients of education. Arising from the “Adinkra” motif is a torch radiating its light in all directions, suggesting that the knowledge nurtured at the University would become a source of enlightenment to all people far and wide. It is a flame that would dispel the darkness of ignorance. The Starburst motif of the Crest is made up of different wave lengths and conveys the idea that teachers trained by the University would disperse into every corner of the country and render services to all Ghanaians irrespective of social status, religion or sex. The red colour combines with the blue against a background of pure
white to symbolise hard work and perseverance. All the symbols are set in a circle bearing the motto: Education for Service and symbolising the completeness of training at the University of Education, Winneba. - UEW website
