The notation is based on that used in . Rotations are counterclockwise and composition is right-to-left, that is, in
acts first. The reflection over the horizontal axis through the center of a figure is denoted
stands for a reflection over the central vertical axis. The reflection over the "main" diagonal (upper-left to lower-right) of a square is denoted
is the reflection over the other diagonal. Similarly, when the figure is set to "triangle,"
denotes the axis of reflection that cuts through the upper-left edge and lower-right vertex of the triangle, and
is the axis of reflection sloping the other way. The elements of the group in the Cayley table are listed with rotations preceding reflections.
