Whether today’s Muslims like it or not, the Star of David was/is an Islamic Symbol

The six-pointed star is actually a common symbol throughout many different religions, including Islam. Muslims know the hexagram as the Seal of Solomon — both Solomon and David were prophets, and both are mentioned in the Islamic holy book, the Quran. The hexagram appears in Islamic artifacts and mosques worldwide.

Look closely at the yellow and dark blue geometrical pattern surrounding the light blue and white striped archway. If one takes the time to examine it carefully enough, then the numerous Stars of David (each composed of 6 blue points surrounding a yellow hexagon) become clearly visible for all to see.

A 13th Century Islamic Flag with the Star of David

Principality of Isfendiyar Flag, 1292-1461 AD

The Isfendiyarids or Isfendiyarid dynasty (Modern Turkish: İsfendiyaroğulları, İsfendiyaroğulları Beyliği), also known as the Beylik of Sinop, the Principality of Isfendiyar and Beylik of Isfendiyar (İsfendiyar Beyliği ), its former name was Jandarids or Principality of Jandar (Candaroğulları, Candaroğulları Beyliği), was an Anatolian Turkoman beylik that ruled…between 1292–1461, in the Black Sea region of modern-day Turkey.

The flag of Jandarids may confuse many with what is now known as the Star of David. In medieval times however, this was not solely a Jewish symbol, but also an Islamic one known as the Seal of Solomon (Suleiman, son of King David) and was extremely popular amongst the Turkish beyliks of Anatolia.
