The Flag of Vim campaign is receiving massive endorsement from Ghanaians willing to display their patriotism by signing onto the flag.
The campaign is gathering up momentum and Ghanaians across the country are patiently waiting for the Flag of Vim campaign trail to visit their region.
Media houses have also pitched in to propagate the essence of the Flag of Vim campaign and its benefit to the national team, the Black Stars.
The Flag of Vim is an 8 by 100 feet giant Ghana flag which is to accommodate the signatures of as many Ghanaians as possible, to show solidarity and support to the Black Stars during the 2014 World Cup tournament in Brazil.
It is Ghana’s biggest gift to the Black Stars as each signature will carry the hope of the person signing it and it will be his or her expression of support for the Black Stars in their quest for glory.
Not many Ghanaians will have the means to travel to Brazil to physically support the national team, but the Flag of Vim will give Ghana the chance to have an overwhelming presence in Brazil, with the signatures of millions to show for it.
The Flag of Vim will be flown to Brazil and officially handed over to the Black Stars.
As it hangs in the stadium, it will invoke in the Stars, the faith of a nation, the hope of a people.
In a bid to get the word out there about the campaign, the Flag of Vim team has been visiting some media houses.
