The Cathedral of St. James in Jerusalem

There’s a 12th century hexagram at the dome of the Armenian Cathedral of St. James, which is  located in the Armenian Quarter in the Old City of Jerusalem. There’s a connection between the six-pointed star and the 12 Apostles (and St. James was one of them) – but I don’t think that this is the meaning of this special hexagram in this case..
