Octogram, an eight pointed star, etc. There are several names for this important symbol. I’m familiar with the octogram mainly from socks and sweaters knitted by grandma. Somehow it’s warm and cozy and very Estonian. I was surprised to learn that this symbol was already used by the Sumerians. It is an ancient symbol of protection, which defends us from evil and brings happiness. Octogram also is a symbol of sun, source, North Star, morning star, four cardinal points and I’m sure it has several other meanings. Surely everyone will find exactly what they need in this symbol, but it must be said that it carries enormous power. Octogram has also been called an eight-pointed star. Number eight sideways is a sign of infinity – eternity, endlessness. In China, number eight symbolizes the totality and comprehensiveness of the Universe. For me, octogram is like a gate – a Heaven’s Gate, and after passing through we can fly higher and see the bigger picture of life.
