That is the old Elephant. What you call an upside down star is the symbol for the Eastern Star that pointed to the manger of the baby Jesus. It was stolen by the pagans. The uninformed in ancient symbols usually make the assumption that it is a pentagram not knowing about the Eastern Star or in some cases the baby Jesus.

I may be incorrect here. But I thought that one of the reasons that the Eastern Star was considered Satanic was that it is associated with Venus (the planet) in the morning sky, which the Romans call Lucifer.
Originally, the word "Lucifer" only meant Venus in the morning sky. Later authors, perhaps Dante, took this name to refer to Satan.
Any thoughts on this?

It was stolen by the pagans.
Kinda like the KKK stole the Confederate Battle Flag and turned it into an "evil" symbol when in fact the St. Andrews Cross is a beloved Christian symbol. I'll take your word on the Eastern Star. I've never heard that before. Thanks!
