- description -
The compass rose is an ornate 16 pointed star, symbolic of the North Star, which historically has been used as an aid to navigation, since it seemingly never moves.
The lines of the compass rose point to the four cardinal directions of north, south, east and west, as well as the graduated directions in between.
