A pentagram is also drawn flat. It is a place where there is supposed to be protection from demons as the demon can't cross over the line into the pentagram. So it's also an old sign for protection and safety, hung on many old barns and houses to keep evil spirits OUT. Then again, when the RCC was designing an image for the *devil*, it used the Greek Pan with his cloven feet. A puck. Not evil, mischievous and musical. A prankster. No fun in THEIR guy though. The church morphed Pan and the Great Horned god, the Celtic Cernunnos, who was the symbol for sex and fertility, into their version of what the devil looks like. No fun, no sex, and it began the dark ages of no music, fear, no laughter or joy, no art, and the worst kind of sexual repression, leading to sadism and madness. It gave rise the the Witches Hammer. It took them years to finish the design, and years to complete the brainwashing. And wallah, the supreme evil, *stan*...the horned man bringing with the image, many deaths.
Until the 15th century, there weren't no sucha thang as an image of the devil. As a matter of fact, it was actually a sin for them to have done this, totally against the Commandments. But what did they care about sin then? By then, they had broken them all.
