Leaving the world of cinema, we can assume that the creators of the series (the book) did not accidentally use the symbolism of a seven-star. In our real mile, the seven-rayed star is one of the driest symbols of the East. In particular, such civilizations, Ancient Assyria, Shemera, Iberia (ancient Georgia). And besides this star is also known under the name Star of Mages.
In ancient times, the seven-pointed star was a symbol of the rising sun.
Seven was used as a symbol of success and good luck at all levels. Many ancient beliefs associated with the number seven, bringing good luck.

This symbol was worn by seekers of secret knowledge and used in many occult organizations.
