The Significance of Sacred Geometry

Pentacle Window

Peace Pentagon Pentacle Window Created by Sheila Brannon

The Peace Pentagon employs sacred geometry based on the numbers 5 and 11. This is similar to the Washington Monument, which is 555 feet tall (5 x 111) and 55 feet wide at its base (5 x 11).

Our structure contains five pentagons:

  • The exterior footprint is a pentagon with 55 ft. walls (5 x 11)
  • The sanctuary is a pentagon with 25 ft. walls (5 x 5)
  • The main classroom is beneath and mirrors the sanctuary
  • The skylight in the sanctuary is a “pentamid” (5-sided pyramid)
  • The pentacle appears in one of our stained-glass windows.
Masons symbol

The Knights Templar and their contemporary cousins the Freemasons are known for using sacred geometry. The square and compass is their symbol and the “G” stands for God and Geometry.

At the end of a rare Venus transit in June 2012, Oracle broke ground on the Peace Pentagon with the 100 Shovels Groundbreaking Ceremony. To learn more about Venus and the Pentacle it creates every eight years, see the History of Our Symbol. Below are progress pictures of the Peace Pentagon construction.
