The six-point star, or hexagram, is Judaism’s main emblem since the 17th century. As a decorative graphic motif it is prevalent in different cultures. In Islamic architecture, it decorates both exteriors and interiors. The six-point star is one of the many decorative motifs which enhance the beauty of the medallions on the Old City walls, built in the 16th century by the Ottoman Sultan, Suleiman the Magnificent.
