The crescent and star motif became popular during the later Victorian period starting around 1880 and continued through the Edwardian era to the 1920s.
The emergence was in part due to the great number of astronomical events including the appearance of Halley’s Comet in 1910. Travel to such exotic climes such as the Middle East and the lands of the Ottoman Empire gave rise to the exposure of the crescent moon as an integrated symbol as well.
