The pentagram



A pentagram, a five sided star, often within a circle, is one of the oldest markings known to humankind. Dating back to Europe as far as 8000 years ago, the pentagram is a symbol fraught with mystery, intrigue, and meaning.

The pentagram is the simplest regular star polygon. The pentagram contains ten points(the five points of the star, and the five vertices of the inner pentagon) and fifteen line segments.
