We explore the role played by the quantum relative phase in the well-known Dicke model. We introduce an appropriate polar decomposition of the atom-field relative amplitudes that leads to a truly Hermitian relative-phase operator, whose eigenstates correctly describe the phase properties. We find the probability distribution for this relative phase and, by resorting to a numerical procedure, we study its time evolution.
