Star of the Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB), presented in the 1979

The first symbol of Afrikaner Weerstandsbeweging (AWB) was the Three-Sevens, but for a short period of time as the main symbol of the movement was choice a four-pointed star cast with an “A” and a “W”. As the most famous Three-Sevens (representing JHWH, JaHShua - JaHWeH incarnate - and the Spirit), this symbol also had a Biblical meaning.
The four-pointed star, also known as the star of Bethlehem, is a symbol of Christianity, wanted to represent the birth of JaHShua and the purpose for which He was born.

Then Herod sent for the wise men privately, and put questions to them about what time the star had been seen. And he sent them to Bethlehem and said, Go and make certain where the young child is; and when you have seen him, let me have news of it, so that I may come and give him worship. And after hearing the king, they went on their way; and the star which they saw in the east went before them, till it came to rest over the place where the young child was. And when they saw the star they were full of joy.
Matthew 2:7-10

The “A” and the “W” was short for “Afrikaner Weerstands” (Afrikaner Resistance - the AWB was born as a white Afrikaner movement, and only later became a nationalist Boer movement). Their merger with the four-pointed star represented the bond with JaHWeHShua (JaHShua).
The AWB’s Star was publicly presented in April 1979, in Pretoria (South Africa), during a meeting of the Movement.
The AWB emphasized as its Star, four pointed, was opposed to five pointed star of Communism, and to six pointed star of the international Judaism, forces that the AWB denounced to be with the false Messiah.

Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father it is your will to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and standeth not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father thereof.
John 8:44

The four-pointed Star was soon abandoned by AWB at least as official symbol, it was still used occasionally.
