The Seven Pointed Star

There is one country in particular that has a seven pointed star on their flag. Seven represents completeness or perfection in the Bible. What country has this star representing their nation? The nation of Jordan does. Why would Jordan have this star and what does it represent? You can see below that they have the colors from the four horses that represent the riders of the apocalypse on their flag.

The red triangle that faces the east represents the Hashemite Dynasty and the Arab Revolt against the Ottoman Empire. The star represents the unity of the Arab people and the “seven points represent seven verses of the first surah in the Quran” or the seven hills that Amman, the capital was built upon.

Here is what the seven pointed star represents according to Wikipedia. “The Sigillum Dei (seal of God, or signum dei vivi, symbol of the living God, called by John Dee the Sigillum Dei Aemaeth) was a late Middle Ages magical diagram, composed of two circles, a pentagram, and three heptagons, and is labeled with the name of God and his angels. It was an amulet (amuletum) with the magical function that, according to one of the oldest sources (Liber iuratus), allowed the initiated magician to have power over all creatures except Archangels, but usually only reserved for those who can achieve the blessed vision of God and angels (beatific visionary).” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sigillum_Dei)

This symbol, “Sigillum Dei”, was associated in the middle ages with alchemy and witchcraft. It was known as the seal of God. Why would Jordan have this star on their flag?
