Two-dimensional reflection symmetry, also known as dyadic symmetry and notated as A1×I, is a 2D spherical symmetry group. It is the symmetry group of the isosceles triangle and corresponds to mirror symmetry. It has only one reflectional element. Every regular polygonal symmetry has this as a subsymmetry, and it is the symmetry of any bilaterally-symmetric polygon.
