Archaeologists claim that there were umbrellas in the XI century BC. This very time is considered the invention of the familiar to us and quite mundane object. Some scientists believe the birthplace of umbrella is China, others – Egypt, as in both countries it obviously was considered a symbol of power. In Egypt, umbrellas used only by Pharaoh, and in China – the emperors and those close to them.
In India, the umbrella was a symbol of wealth and power. The nobler was man, the more his entourage had the right to wear umbrella. Ruler had 13 umbrellas, symbolizing the sun and located around the 12 signs of the zodiac. In Tibet, white or yellow umbrellas are considered a symbol of spiritual greatness, while the secular authorities are more consistent with umbrellas of peacock feathers. Then from the East umbrellas moved to ancient Greece, then – to Rome, where they were used by women.
