What do you call a circle image with star points all around?

Used to call attention to specials, etc.

This is going to be hard to describe. Imagine a circle. All around the outside edge of the circle are pointy edges (little triangles if you will). Inside the circle is some eye catching phrase like "SALE!", "New", or "FREE!".

These type of images are used on web pages and print publications to get the users attention. Does this have a name? Is there a special name for the shap of a circle with points all around it?

It's called a star-I think, though I'm not sure if there are different classifications for stars with 7 or more points.

Often referred to as a burst, at least in print advertising.
