The gye nyame symbol is the best known African symbol. It means “except for God” and signifies the all-knowing power of God and his control of all things. If you look closely at the symbol you can see that it shows a person inside of a hand. It is a picture of how we are held in the hand of God.

Another translation of the gye nyame symbol is this: This great panorama of creation dates back to time immemorial; no one lives who saw its beginning and no one will live to see its end, EXCEPT GOD.
