Two Overlaid Triangles: The Star Of David

Satisfactory Essays
The Star of David or the Shield of David is made of two overlaid triangles that form a six-pointed star. It appears on Jewish tombstones, the flag of the State of Israel and other Jewish related objects. A long time ago the Star of David appeared more among Jews but did not have any special religious significance. The Jewish community of Prague was the first to use the Star David as its official symbol. In the 17th century the Star of David became the official symbol of Judaism. My pictures are the Star of David, the Israel flag, and on a tombstone.
