Christian White Lily

On a postage stamp titled Madonna of Luxemburg (1945) we see a frame made from hexagrams and white Lilies alternately surrounding Mary with Jesus on her bosom. The hexagram is called sometimes the Star of Mary. The white lily symbolizes purity and virginity. Researcher Uri Ofir discovered that there’s also a connection between the Jewish six-pointed star and the White Lily since the Star of David comes from the Lily (and the knob) of the Tabernacle candlestick. The picture is courtesy of Gideon from the Israeli Stamp collector’s Forum “collect”.
