Given the fact that the Star of David is simply a hexagram (one of the most basic shapes in geometry), one can say with a fair amount of confidence that humans have been drawing this symbol for various reasons for the past 10,000 years at least. No one has ever claimed that the Biblical character David (1040-970 BC) was the first person in history to ever make use of the symbol. In fact, there”s a strong possibility that David became acquainted with the symbol due to the fact it was already well-known and in use at about the same time he chose it to be his royal emblem. If you are asking when the hexagram was created then the answer would be at least 10,000 years ago. On the other hand, if you are wondering when the specific hexagram known as the Star of David was ‘created’ then the answer is sometime between the years 1020 to 1000 BC during the first few decades of King David’s reign.
