The keys to Algiers, capital of Algeria.

The keys to Algiers, capital of Algeria. They were seized by the French on the 5th of July 1830 and are now on display in the musée de l'Armée in Paris. The fact that the Seal of Solomon is engraved on the key is such a powerful symbol, a physical visualization of the wish to deter evil from entering the city and keep the devils and diseases out. It didn't, however, keep the French from seizing both the keys and the town.

Second Battle of Ḥomṣ

A manuscript of Hayton of Coricos' Fleur des histoires de la terre d'Orient, 14th century, depicts Mamluk knights chasing their Mongol enemies during the Second Battle of Ḥomṣ (1281). The Mongols are seen brandishing a red banner with two Seals of Solomon. Although their army consisted mainly of Armenians and Georgians, it's possibly that the artist used a random Muslim symbol to represent the Mongol hordes. Another theory is that these Mongols were already influenced by Islamic culture.

The flag of Israel

Is the flag of Israel actually Jewish? The answer is no, not really. As historian Gershom Scholem said: "The hexagon is not a Jewish symbol, much less "the symbol of Judaism.” None of the marks of a true symbol nor its manner of origin… apply to it." The origins of David's Star/Solomon's Seal lie within the Muslim world, only to become a symbol for Judaism from the 19th century onward.
