The Statue of Liberty is the official symbol of the Libertarian Party, but the porcupine is used to represent libertarianism because it is a defensive animal that doesn't harm anyone who leaves it alone. For this reason, many libertarian groups and publications, including the Free State Project, use the porcupine for a mascot.
