The great heptagram is a polygon with 7 sides. Its created by taking the second stellation of a heptagram. A regular great heptagram has equal sides and equal angles.

It is one of two regular 7-sided star polygons, the other being the heptagram.

## Vertex coordinates

Coordinates for a regular heptagram of edge length 2sin(3π/7), centered at the origin, are:

• (1, 0),
• (cos(2π/7), \pmsin(2π/7)),
• (cos(4π/7), \pmsin(4π/7)),
• (cos(6π/7), \pmsin(6π/7)).
