Driving through the countryside, you might notice large five-point stars adorning the sides of many barns. Although these metal barn stars may look like Americana wall decor, they actually have a larger significance.
Also known as primitive stars, these metal stars are common in farming settlements with German heritage and they’re believed to bring good luck.
Like the superstition of hanging a horseshoe on a barn, the history of the barn star began as an attempt to ward off evil. German settlers sometimes painted elaborate star images on their barns that eventually came to be known as “hex signs.” The term was derived from the word “hexe,” which means “witch” in German. The original paintings resembled Amish quilt squares more so than what we classically think of as a star.
The color of the star is also significant. Each color had a different meaning. For example, blue and black barn stars both represent protection. Green signifies fertility and hope for growth on the farm. White stands for purity, and violet was considered holy. Brown means friendship and strength and pays homage to Mother Earth.
