The Pentangle as Truth

The pentangle represents the five virtues of knights: friendship, generositychastity, courtesy, and piety. Gawain’s adherence to these virtues is tested throughout the poem, but the poem examines more than Gawain’s personal virtue; it asks whether heavenly virtue can operate in a fallen world.pentagle

The Pentagle is also known as an endless knot and symbol of faithfulness.
