Historical ancdote:
The pontifical tiara, also called triregne, is a cap with three golden crowns, symbolizing the pope's triple power, spiritual, moral and political (which places him above kings and emperors). It is no longer used as a ceremonial cap since Pope Paul XVI but it still appears officially in the coat of arms of the Holy See and on the flag of the Vatican.
