A square has 4 lines of symmetry. Lines of symmetry are fictitious lines that cut an item or shape into two identical halves at their centers. The two halves of a geometric figure match up when folded along a symmetry line.

4 Lines of Symmetry in Square

  • A line of symmetry must either pass through two vertices and then the other two vertices couple up when folded over the line, or it must match two vertices on one side of the line with two vertices on the other.
  • Rectangle, square, circle, isosceles triangle, and equilateral triangle are geometric shapes with a line of symmetry.
  • For instance, the given illustration shows that a square has four lines of symmetry.

The line of symmetry is the fictitious line or axis which you fold a figure along to get its symmetrical halves. In original, it splits one thing to two mirror images. The symmetry line may run horizontally, vertically, or diagonally. There could be one or more symmetry lines.

  • 1 Line of symmetry
  • 2 Lines of symmetry
  • 3 Lines of symmetry
  • 4 Lines of symmetry
  • Infinite Lines


Types of Symmetry

  • Translation Symmetry
  • Rotational Symmetry
  • Reflection Symmetry
  • Glide Symmetry
