Description[уреди]

A hexagram (six-pointed star formed by overlapping two equilateral triangles).

Etymology[уреди]

The precise origin of the use of it as a Jewish symbol remains unknown, but it apparently emerged in the context of medieval Jewish protective amulets (segulot). The Jewish Encyclopedia cites a 12th-century Karaite document as the earliest Jewish literary source to mention the symbol.[1]

Symbol[уреди]

  1. Judaism or Jewish identity.

Usage notes[уреди]

This shape is generically called a hexagram (and has a wider array of definitions), but this specific symbol has been labelled by Unicode for use as the Star of David.
