Gye Nyame is a symbol expressing the omnipotence of God.

Gye Nyame is arguably the most popular Adinkra symbol and expresses the deep faith the Akans have in the Supreme Being. The following names and titles given to the Supreme Being illustrate how he is perceived in Akan thought: Onyame  or Nyame, meaning the one who satisfies; Onyankopɔn or Nyankopon, meaning the unique and great one; and Twereduampɔn, meaning the great dependable one.

In the Akan scheme of things, God (Nyame) is omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient.
