Two-row necklace Flower of life – circle
Flower of life
This ancient Slavic protective symbol bears many names nowadays. We know it as Perun’s star, Svarga, the flower of life, the solar circle, the hexagram, etc. This symbol has the form of a six- or eight-pointed rosette (sometimes inscribed in a circle). It is one of the oldest Slavic protective symbols, and was believed to protect from fire, storm, lightning, as well as war. It is also the symbol of Sun and light (the solar symbol). In the past, it was mainly associated with the Slavic god of storms, lightning, and thunder – Perun – who was worshipped as the bearer of lifegiving moisture and a solar deity.
