Abstract

The red Liberty Cap, or Phrygian cap, worn by Columbia, the personification of America, was an ancient Roman symbol of freedom from tyranny. Ancient Romans were known to have given the cap to freed slaves. Adopted in the late 18th century as a revolutionary icon in France, the symbol was also prominent on early American coins and can be seen today on the official seal of the United States Senate.
