Star of David
(more than one)
Internationally recognized as a primary symbol of Judaism since World War I, usage of the Star of David (also called the “Shield of David” due to a tradition that it was the shape of King David’s shield) dates from at least the third century of the Christian era. Most frequently, the star is associated with the numbers six (the six days of creation) and seven (the six points plus the center, signifying the whole of creation). The number seven has considerable religious significance in Judaism. The Star of David is featured on the flag of the nation of Israel.
