History of the Shield of David (from Wikipedia)
The Star of David in the oldest surviving complete copy of the Masoretic text, the Leningrad Codex, dated 1008. The Menorah on the Arch of Titus: notice the three stems on each side plus the central stem, totaling seven. Likewise the Shield of David came to be understood as seven, with two triangles of three points each united around a central point.
By modern times, the Shield of David hexagram has become a widely recognized symbol to represent the Jewish people. However the origins of this use are complex with obscure developments emerging since medieval times.
Regarding the Jewish use of the hexagram symbol, early Jewish literature does not mention it.
