Pentangle is also the central symbol of 'Gawain and the Green Knight'. "Right well and worthily it went with the knight. And why the pentangle is proper ... that in it five points holdeth, and each line overlaps and is linked with another and every way it is endless; and the English, I hear, everywhere name it the Endless Knot." (Stanza 27) The poem contains 101 stanzas, beginning where it ends in terms of both Troy and Yuletide as further signs of the endless cycle. Gawain's shield bears a pentangle. It is a token of truth, endless cycle, perfection, symmetry, and that Gawain possesses the five fives:
