Birth of The Báb and Birth of Bahá’u’lláh

200 Years

The 200 in this 9-pointed stars refers to two dates, one observed in 2017 and one that observed in 2019.

The unofficial (not an official Bahá'í organization) but reliable Bahaikipedia notes that "the Festivals of the Twin Birthdays or the Twin Holy Birthdays refers to two successive holy days in the Bahá'í calendar that celebrate the births of two central figures of the Bahá'í Faith.

"The two holy days are the birth of the Báb on the first day of Muharram in the Islamic calendar (Oct. 20, 1819) and the birth of Bahá'u'lláh on the second day of Muharram (two years prior, on Nov. 12, 1817)."
