The Star of 8 Points (Estrella de 8 Puntas) is a symbol found all over Abya Yala and northern territories. In the Andes, it is a very old symbol that survived hundreds of years of colonization. Its use was both spiritual, and practical, as it was used to measure the arrival of equinoxes, the travel of stars and planets, and contains mathematical knowledge of the earth's shape and northern/southern hemispheres.

It also reminds us of the influence of the Sun and the Moon in our lives. It was used to strengthen character and to define personality.
