The Star of David, also known as the Shield of David or Magen David in Hebrew, is a six-pointed star that is a symbol of Judaism and Jewish identity. It is made up of two overlapping triangles, which form a hexagram shape.
The Star of David has been used as a symbol of Jewish identity for centuries, although its exact origins are not clear. Some scholars believe that it may have been used as a decorative motif in ancient Jewish art, while others suggest that it may have been used as a symbol of King David, who is considered a hero and important figure in Jewish history.
Today, the Star of David is widely recognized as a symbol of Jewish identity and is used in many contexts, including on the flag of Israel and in Jewish art and jewelry. It is also sometimes used as a symbol of interfaith unity and cooperation, as it is recognized by many people around the world as a symbol of Judaism.
