Where does ✡️ Star of David emoji come from?

The Star of David emoji ✡️ was approved as part of Unicode 1.1 in 1993 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015. On all major platforms, the emoji depicts an all-white illustration of a six-cornered Star of David drawn on a purple square with rounded corners.

The Star of David is widely recognized as a symbol of Judaism. It is a hexagram, formed by two overlapping triangles that form a star with six points, and has been used as a symbol of Jewish identity since the 1300s and used throughout Europe since the 1600s. The Star of David was adopted by the Zionist movement in 1897 and incorporated into the design of the flag of the new State of Israel in 1948. The symbol, however, dates back to ancient times, appearing in churches built during the first century, for example.

The six pointed star is also used by the Black Gangster Disciple Nation. One of its founders was David Barksdale, who goes by the name King David. The gang claims the six points represent Love, Life, Loyalty, Knowledge, Wisdom, and Understanding.
