The border to the left portrays the colors of the Ashanti Star (7th December, 1895 – 17th January, 1896). This gun-metal star was awarded in 1896 to 2,000 troops who had taken part between the dates mentioned in the Ashanti Expedition under Major-General Sir F. C. Scott against King Prempeh, who had been indulging in cannibalism and human sacrifices. The expedition captured Coomassie, the Ashanti capital.
