'''Hedjet''' (''{{lang|egy-Latn|ḥḏt}}'') is the formal name for the White Crown of [[Pharaoh|pharaonic]] [[Upper Egypt]]. The crown was white and, after the unification of [[Ancient Egypt|Egypt]], it was combined with the [[Deshret]], the Red Crown of [[Lower Egypt]], to form the [[Pschent]], the Double Crown of Egypt. The symbol sometimes used for the Hedjet was the vulture goddess [[Nekhbet]] shown next to the head of the cobra goddess [[Wadjet]], the [[Uraeus]] on the [[Pschent]].<ref>Arthur Maurice Hocart, ''The Life-Giving Myth'', Routledge 2004, p.209</ref>
