Star and Crescent

Star and Crescent: the glory of God

The star and the crescent are the sun and the moon constituting an islamic symbol which represents the circle or the glory formed when the sun is aligned with the moon during an annular solar eclipse. This means that the star and the crescent constitute the ring of light visible in the sky during an annular solar eclipse.

The star is the five-pointed star representing the pentarchy (the five patriarchates), and the crescent is the moonlight representing Islam or the Muslims.

The star and the crescent constitute an Islamic symbol symbolizing Hagia Sophia, a Church/Mosque in Istanbul where Islam and Christianity were aligned. The star (the sun) is the Christian identity of Hagia Sophia before the coming of the Muslims, while the crescent (the moon) is the Muslim identity of Hagia Sophia after the fall of Constantinople.

This means that the star and the crescent in the flag of Turkey is the glory of God representing the circle of the sky of the first heaven.

It also means that the location of the first heaven on earth is the country known as Turkey; that is why the turkish flag is the star and the crescent.
