Ukrainian Winter Star 
Traditionally Ukrainian Star has a shape of octagonal – eight rays coming from the center. This star is octagram: the projection of the diamond (the heavenly world) into a square (the material world), and their mutual intersection.

Ideologically, this is a symbol of the Order and the World Creation. It connects all sides of the world and indicates absolute balance, harmony and equilibrium.
