All these pictures were made online using simple, 2 and 4, 3 and 6 and snowflake symmetry designers.
This face is a simple reflection - vertical line |
This house reflected in water is a simple reflection (of course!) - horizontal line |
This is a rabbit (from the back). It is vertical, simple symmetry. |
This flag is reflection - four lines of symmetry. It is not quite a Union Flag. |
The butterfly is reflection with 2 diagonal lines |
This Greek Key has rotational symmetry - 2 fold. |
A better representation of the Union Flag (although both the colours and proportion are not quite right). It is 4 fold rotational symmetry. The broad white band must be on top nearest the flagpole, which is assumed to be on the left if not shown. |
The recycling symbol has 3 fold rotational symmetry |
Another 3 fold symmetry pattern |
A reflective pattern with 3 lines of symmetry |
A reflective pattern with 6 lines of symmetry |
A 6 fold rotational symmetry pattern |
An attempt at a Tudor Rose. This should have 5 lines of symmetry rather than 6, as here. |
While this is a tessellation it is also a reflective pattern with 6 lines of symmetry |
