EmojiTerra The Star of David design is taken from the shield of Israel’s King David, and is a hexagram, formed by two overlapping triangles that form a star with six points. It’s been used as a symbol of Jewish identity since the 1300s but only used throughout Europe in 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 menorah actually pre-dates the star as a symbol of Jewish identity, dating back to the Roman ages. 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. The Star of David was approved as part of Unicode 1.1 in 1993 and added to Emoji 1.0 in 2015.
