A Phrygian Cap is a conical cap made from soft material with the tip slightly bent forward. It originated in the Eastern European city of Phrygia and became a symbol of freedom in the American and French revolutions. Red is the most common color of the Phrygian cap, with a red, white, and blue ribbon pinned to it.

The Phrygian cap is made from wool or other warm materials, making it warm and comfortable to wear for long hours. The cap is placed neatly on the wearer’s head and covers the forehead slightly; at times, a little hair might be visible at the center of the brow as the cap doesn’t completely cover the forehead.

A variant of the Phrygian cap also has panels hanging down from the headband that fall onto the wearer’s ears.
