What's that red star on Bono's jacket?

I've seen it everywhere. He even had it on the shirt he was wearing for the Mick Jagger documentary. Maybe I'm too much of a newbie for all things "U2" and missed the significance but what is that thing?

btw, nice to see "Walk On" on Leno tonight.

I remember reading somewhere earlier this year that a fan gave him a button w/ a picture of a friend or family member-not sure which-who had died, and Bono put it on his guitar.

Not sure if this is the same button though.

Okay I don't want to say this of course but we all know the obvious that the red star is the symbol of -gulp- communism. Of course Bono is no communist,he is rich and he was happy the Berlin wall fell but it is strange he has such a thing for that red star. Maybe he just thinks it looks pretty on him.

These pricks in night's veil suggest, to Christians, "the Light shining in the darkness, the Light that darkness could not overpower". Or as Mithras put it: "I am a star which goes with thee and shines out of the depths." Stars stand for the spirit, piercing the darkness as an expression of their triumph against the overwhelming odds of oblivion."

Bono's a commie!! LOL.

It's a good thing the Cold War is over or this might actually turn into a serious discussion.

if you are referring to the button on leno i believe it was a picture of the burmese activist aung san suu kyi, whom 'walk on' was dedicated to(look at your atyclb booklet).

as i watched the leno performance with a friend of mine, he took one look at bono and said 'the red star, symbol of eternal life'. i don't know, i've never heard that but apparently within the punk community(he's in a gta area band) that's what the red star symbolizes.

------------------
Kobayashi's bizarre use of colour, superfast editing and extreme camera angles, coupled with a hilariously deadpan performance by Toshiro Takemitsu as the inspector who discovers a whole family of ghosts travelling without valid tickets, remains without peer.

I also believe the pic on the button was of Aung San Suu Kyi, it looked like her.
I don't know about the red star, maybe is his rank in the army of love.
