This is an image of an upside-down pentagram, which also appears with the star facing up. The shape of a pentagram is a five-pointed star made up of five straight strokes. Pentagrams were employed metaphorically in ancient Greece and Babylonia, and many Wiccans use them today as a symbol of faith, similar to how Christians use the cross and Jews use the Star of David. The pentagram has mystical associations, and many Neopagans wear jewelry with the emblem. The pentagram was once again widely used by Christians to symbolise Jesus’ five wounds. The pentagram is associated with Freemasonry and is also used by a number of other religions.
