    Question?

    Washington D.C. is the capital of America right? D.C. stands for District of Columbia. District means it's part of something else. So where is Columbia and/or what does it represent?

    History says it's named that because the surrounding area around the nation capital was called "Columbia territory". But it goes much deeper than that.


    Who knows the answer to this question.


    HELP!

    On September 9, 1791, the federal city was named in honor of George Washington, and the district was named the Territory of Columbia, Columbia being a poetic name for the United States in use at that time. Congress held its first session in Washington on November 17, 1800.

    Brother

    You are one of the deepest brothers here and you gave me the generic answer?

    Columbia represents something more than just a "territory".

    Thanks for the effort

    I wish Maryland was the answer and it was that simple. :em2300:

    I do appreciate your time.

    I gave you a "generic" answer because of the context in which you raised the question, as I would answer to my students in a social studies/us history class.

    If you are asking what Columbia "represents": This takes it to the symbolic representation of the goddess Columbia and her significance to the so-called Illuminati.

    I wasn't thinking you were asking for "deep".

    http://www.abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread268257/pg1

    www.goddesscolumbia.com... - Almost from the moment the New World was discovered, it was seen in mythological terms as an exotic goddess, an Indian Queen dressed in feathers and furs ridding an exotic beast like an armadillo and armed with a tomahawk.

    The Catholic south adapted the idea of the Goddess of the New World into the ever-expanding hagiology of the Catholic Church. The Virgin of Guadalupe allowed the archetype to become personal, a connection to the land and its ancestors, while joining a larger universalist vision inside the Church. In the largely Protestant north, things went quite differently.

    The 17th century’s Indian Goddess became a tamer Indian Princess, modelled on the archetypal story of Pocahontas. ... As the 18th century passed, and America grew more developed and its people more educated, the Indian princess gained a touch of Greek elegance. "By the late 1790s," folk-art historian Nancy Jo Fox comments, "it was not clear whether a feathered Indian Princess had changed into a Greek goddess or whether a Greek goddess had placed feathers or plumes in her hair."

    The Goddess can be represented in many different ways. As Venus she is depicted as, or on a clam shell. She is often depicted as a 5 pointed star, or wearing a pentacle as a crown. There's the Triple Goddess of the 3 phases of the moon. The flag of the District of Columbia has 3 five-pointed stars on it. As the star Sirius she is the Blazing Star and represents water and the color blue, the Spirit of Wisdom and the Brightly Radiating One or Shinning One.

    The sycamore specifically was regarded as a manifestation of the goddesses Nut, Isis and Hathor, who was even given the title, "Lady of the Sycamore." Also as the virgin Columbian Flower with it's 5-Petals. As Innana, Isis, Athena and Minerva she is often depicted with an Owl.

    She is most often shown with an eagle, broken chains and pottery, a cornucopia, images of George Washington, a laurel wreath, a liberty pole and cap, a liberty tree, an olive branch, a rattlesnake, a shield and a stone tablet. The statue of Columbia that used to stand behind the speaker's chair in the House of Representatives is a fine example. In this one we see the Eagle, and on the other side a snake coiled around a Greek column

    Just as the United States was seen as a breakaway colony from the British, "Columbia" (Columb) was representative of a "breakaway" star system from the parent Orion/Sirius system. This is what is also known as the Dove Constellation, which is why the Dove is used as a symbol of peace.

    The constellation contains the runaway star μ Columbae, which was probably expelled from the ι Orionis system.
