The tree-leaves, the beehives, religious symbols, the flowers, handkerchiefs, and rugs everywhere we find various types of symmetrical designs. In NCERT Class 7 Maths Chapter 14  Symmetry we will discuss line symmetry, lines of symmetry for regular polygons and rotational symmetry. The "Line of Symmetry" is defined as the imaginary line or axis that passes through the centre of the object or shape and divides it into two perfectly identical halves. Rotational symmetry is symmetry when an object or shape is rotated around a centre point (fixed point) by a number of degrees and the object or shape looks exactly the same. In a complete turn of 360-degree, the number of times an object or shape looks exactly the same is called the order of rotational symmetry. The order of symmetry for an equilateral triangle is 3 and the order of symmetry for a square is 4.

Regular polygons like a regular hexagon, regular pentagon, square etc have equal sides and equal angles. They have more than one lines of symmetry. Number of lines of symmetry of some regular polygon are given in the following table-
