What is a good symbol for freedom?
So I am continuing on with my idea on building a nation type site and I'm probably going with the name CrowdFreedom.com, representing a grassroots crowd effort to organize a free society.
I am trying to come up with a symbol that best represents freedom (paging TR).
I like the idea of freedom being represented by each individual being conscious and aware. I see freedom as tied in to wisdom and intelligence. The more aware we are the more free we are. The less aware and more ignorant we are the less free we are. So I think some type of symbol representing consciousness or wisdom would probably be fitting.
A light bulb is kinda good but kinda corny too.
A serpent would be good but it has been perverted and has too many negative connotations I think.
I think a tree could be a fairly interesting symbol, especially the Bodhi Tree.
I like pyramids as they represent a level of development as you reach the top, but at the same time they represent hierarchy which may not be best for a site like this.
Fire might also be good symbolism.
On that note a phoenix could be appropriate as well.
A 3rd eye or some type of pineal gland symbolism could also be interesting.
These are just some of my thoughts.
I want the symbolism to carry a positive feel and not be attacking anything. I want to give the impression of freedom derived through wisdom and personal responsibility.
