This 2001 article from the Colonial Williamsburg Journal offers a fairly eloquent exposition of certain aspects of hexagonal symbolism that are worth noting. I found the hexagons themselves fairly interesting too—particularly in contrast with the rather hexagon-poor architecture of colonial New England that I'm more familiar with. I've never been a great fan of Anglicanism, or High Church aesthetics in general, but the Puritans clearly couldn't design an interesting building if their lives depended on it—indeed, they probably would've interpreted a hexagonal cupola as a sign of idol worship or something.
