During an interview yesterday with a Sky News correspondent, one of Libya’s freedom fighters triumphantly wore one of Muammar Gaddafi’s hats as he spoke about liberating the former dictator’s compound from regime forces.

The former Libyan dictator, who has not been located since the fall of Tripoli, was known for wearing bizarre, colorful clothing, often topped by various strange hats. The hat seen in the video below was Gaddafi’s military hat.

“To those people that stood with Gaddafi, I would like to ask them to be with us, to shake our hands, to start a new beginning, a new life, a new future, a new Libya, as we all Libyans would like to have,” the rebel fighter said.
