The tsarouchi, the typically-Greek shoe with the big round tassel on the tip
Tsarouchi is a type of shoe worn by Evzones of the Greek Presidential Guard.
The pompon on the tip symbolizes the small tree of liberty (and also serves as a reminder of the 400 years of slavery) and inside the pompon there is a blade that symbolizes the kick that the brave man who wears it will give to every enemy who dares to hurt that tree of liberty. Also, the tsarouchia are a symbol of the Uprising of '21, the red color symbolizes blood, while the black symbolizes mourning. 2021 is a highly symbolic year for Greece as it marks the 200th anniversary of the outbreak of the country’s Independence War against the Ottoman rule in 1821.
