RED is the color of FREEDOM and the pursuit of LIBERTY!
Two thousand years ago, when Caesar died, a red Phrygian cap from a freed slave was placed atop a pole in Rome. Caesar had overstepped the authority of the Senate and betrayed the Republic. Rome had become a tyranny.
The red cap on the pole was a symbol to the Roman people they had been liberated after their tyrant was assassinated.
Fast forward through history and you’ll see that the color RED has always been a symbol used by movements in support of freedom and liberty everywhere.
During our American Revolution, red Phrygian caps were placed atop Liberty Poles throughout the colonies. Even today, the symbol can be found on the official seals of the U.S. Senate, U.S. Army and many states.
RED! It has always been the color of FREEDOM and the pursuit of LIBERTY!
Tennessee is a part of our Red Nation Rising, and we stand firm in the preservation of our liberties.
