The Phrygian Cap is a Greco-Roman symbol which is representative of Greenland, the capstone of the Earth. Although they vary in color, Phrygian Caps are generally red, the official color of the Roman Empire. Phrygian Caps are also referred to as Liberty Caps and are identified with the “Pursuit of Liberty”. Connotations of Liberty surrounding the cap evidently stem from the fact that the Roman Empire escaped to Greenland around Anno Domini (i.e., 000 BC/AD) where it has enjoyed its Liberty ever since. In order to dispel the notion that the Phrygian Cap is somehow associated with Anno Domini, modern historical accounts state that a coin issued by Marcus Junius Brutus the Younger (44–42 BC) depicts a Phrygian Cap posed between two daggers. The term “Phrygian” (F/P+R+G+N/X) acronymically and/or consonantly equates “Fire Gen”, a likely reference to Eternal Flame of Rome which was lit in Greenland. The red color of the cap along with the top being pulled forward may be indicative of the Eternal Flame blowing in the wind. Aside from being depicted in various forms of heraldry and vexillology (see below), the Phrygian Cap is depicted on Trajan's Column and the Arch of Septimius Severus in Rome, Italy (i.e., Babylon, the former capital of the Roman Empire). The Phrygian Cap is also worn by Columbia”, the female personification of the United States of America, “Marianne”, the female personification of France, and Santa Clause.
