Also known as the Shield of David or “Māḡēn” in Hebrew, the Star of David is the most common symbol used today to express Jewish identity … but it was not always so! From a purely aesthetic point of view, it corresponds to what we call a hexagram.

However, the historical and semantic analyses will interest us during this study, particularly its meaning.
