It was a Byzantine symbol that was adopted in the middle ages by various Muslim armies.

Countries that use the symbol now just stole it from the Ottoman flag.

Cuck much?

99% sure the Arabs worshiped a moon god before Allah, and adopted crescent moon symbols into Islam since they were already using them on all their religious things.
>>
>>671264
False. Moon flag was adopted a thousand hear later. Most original Islamic symbol were like pic related.

The colors are combinations of banners used by the abbasids and ummayads

>Moon God

There were tribal gods but never gods of this and that. Each tribe had a God of its own.

>>671207
That was banner of Constantinople but wasn't used by the time Ottomans took it. Ottomans used crescent flag before taking Constantinople, the star however was added later and might be due Constantinople.

The arabs were sandwiched between the Byzantines and Persians. Also there had been a Jewish Empire in Yemen that collapsed shortly before the prophet was born.

So Arabia had tons of Jews, Orthodox Christians, Gnostics, Zoroastrians, and Pagans. The pagans had many different Gods.

The "Islamic " moon and crescent has to do with Turkic dieties related to Tengriism. It has nothing to do with Byzantines, Muslims, or pre-islamic Arab gods.

Before the Turks their was no real symbol for Islam other than maybe colored banners with calligraphy

Why are Turks are such Romaboos??
>>
Pretty sure the banners of most, if not all, Arab caliphates/emirates before the coming of the Turks were just solid-color banners with the occasional Koranic scripture on them
>>
As per tradition the Turks took the roman's crescent but when the muslim empires fell and only the Ottomons survived Muslims accepted the crescent as their symbol
>>
>>671264
>Allah
IIRC Allah was in the moon god you are talking about before the pre islamic era. But OP is correct in my opinion. The crescent was used after the conquest of Byzantium, those greeks used the crescent before constantine settled in. Its no coincidence that both crescents look very much alike.
>>
>>671207
Whereas Crescent appears precisely in the times of Turkish migration, long before the conquest of Constantinople, probably refers to Tengri, gaining a new meaning to Islamization.

Since 1517, the Ottomans took the spiritual and political leadership of the Islamic world (Sunni), assuming the Caliphate. Not only its formal protectorates, as their satellites and allies began to emulate the full range of practices that the Ottomans adopted. Clothing, weapons, architecture, and even symbols.

All save for Pakistan (Mughals) have Turkish origin, you're right.

>Romans were using crescent of moon already for centuries.Crescent with star was a symbol of Ancient town of Byzantion but was still heavily used even after place was turned into Constantinople.Praetorian guard seemes to like this motif as well.Lion with radiant head probably become symbol of the Praetorians during 3rd century.

That's Pre-Roman. It's from the Greek city of Byzantion (later essentially rebuilt and became Constantinoupolis). I think the Crescent and Moon was a symbol of Artemis.

Turks have had Star and Crescent since Baideng Xiongnu Turks led by Modu Shanyu (Mete Khan) defeated the Chinese at 209 BC.

Star and Crescent was the Pagan symbol for √úlgen, Tengri's brother and the patron God of Turkics and Mongols.

Tengri's symbol was the Cosmic Eagle

Erlik's symbol was the Black Tree

Even White Wolf RPG designers know that the Crescent Star is a Turkic symbol way back when they designed Promethean 7 years ago.

Ulgen the Turkic God of the "Red Apple" (Westward Conquest) has a symbol og a Crescent Moon since before Christ, 10,000 km from any Roman influence waaaaay east in the Altai Mountains where Turks originate.
>>
>>671207
You moron. Turks brought crescent and star to Islam, not the other way around. Before Turks took over Islam from pagan roots, arabs used Allah's typography or the first prayer as symbols.

BASED Turks said "fuck you arab shits" and cucked their religion.

What does it represent?

In Islamic use the star has 5 points that represent the five pillars of Islam.

The moon bit doesn't really mean anything, there's a million and one legends about where that comes from.

Isn't the pentagram a European symbol?

It can be found in many cultures around the world.
The "Wu Xing" (five Chinese elements) is one example, with a pentagram used to show the "overcoming" cycle.
It's not an exclusively European symbol.

Correlation vs. Causation, friend. I'm not a muslim but this image is obviously bullshit.
