The **dodecagram** is a star polygon with 12 sides. A regular dodecagram has equal sides and equal angles.

This is the fourth stellation of the dodecagon, and the only one that is not a compound. The only other polygons with a single non-compound stellation are the pentagon, the octagon, and the decagon.

It is the uniform quasitruncation of the hexagon, and as such appears as faces in a handful of uniform Euclidean tilings. It is the largest star polygon known to appear in any non-prismatic spherical or Euclidean uniform polytopes.

## Vertex coordinates[edit | edit source]

Coordinates for a dodecagram of unit edge length, centered at the origin, are all permutations of:

## Representations[edit | edit source]

A dodecagram has the following Coxeter diagrams:

- x12/5o (full symmetry)
- x6/5x () (G
_{2}symmetry)
