**Chiral cubic symmetry**, also known as **chiral octahedral symmetry**, **kicubic symmetry**, or notated as **B _{3}+** or

**BC**, is a 3D spherical symmetry group. It is the symmetry group of the snub cube, or equivalently the symmetry group of the cube or octahedron with all the reflections removed.
