SYMBOLS Stories of cultural life.


The star, in ancient custom, represents heavenly guidance and divine leadership. Stars in legend, myth, and even scripture have acted as guides, omens, and portents for men and served to mark special events and people.

It’s a symbol of divine guidance and hope.

A five-pointed star represents the Star of Bethlehem: it is symbolic of the life of Christ and may also represent the five wounds of Christ. A six-pointed star represents creation.
