The Star of Lakshmi is a special octagram, a regular compound polygon, represented by Schläfli symbol {8/2} or 2{4}, made from two congruent squares with the same center at 45° angles, and figures in Hinduism, where it represents Ashtalakshmi, the eight forms, or "kinds of wealth", of the goddess Lakshmi.

In popular culture[edit]

The symbol is used by the band Faith No More on their website www.fnm.com and other media from the band such as their 1985 album We Care a Lot.
