Star of David


The Star of David is one of the symbols of Judaism. Although traditionally the symbol of Judaism was the seven-branched candelabrum (call menorah), the emblem of Judaism (composed of two equilateral triangles forming a six-pointed star) was traditionally used to distinguish the communities reserved for Jews from the Middle Ages and also in the Second World War. Finally, with the establishment of the State of Israel the Star of David became the symbol of the state. The two linked triangles represent the balance of the universe. The first triangle represents the sun, the fire and the masculine energy. The second triangle represents the moon the water and the feminine energy.
