I blogged about this topic a few months back and it attracted many viewers. Like myself, they’re curious or heard somewhere that the big stars on homes and barns in Kentucky were Masonic symbols. I’ve since learned that the ancient Pythagorean Brotherhood believed that this five-pointed star symbolized health and well being. This pentagram was the secret recognition sign between the brotherhood. Interesting that another star associated with guarding against disease was the six pointed star Solomon’s Seal, now seen upon the flag of Israel.
