Why a pentagram?

At the Radha Krsna temple in Miami FL they have a beautiful temple with a marble floor, but there's a pentagram built into the floor? I'm intrested in learning about krsna and all things related to him but as a reformed christian i only know this to be a sign of the devil.... I know hinduism was around much much before christianity and the christains could have taken this symbol and put their own spin on it, if so what does this symbol mean in relation to Lord Sri Krsna?

PS: I didn't feel comfortable asking this question at the temple so i thought i'd try it here,Thankyou.

Do you have a picture? Is it a building built by ISKCON or bought? In the latter case it'd be necessary to find out who made it.

Pentagram has more interpretations. In India it symbolizes five mahabhutas, elements (this is also the concept of Western witchcraft traditions) and is related to Durga. I'm not aware of its direct relationship to Krsna.
