Planar symmetry groups

When I learned about the operations of symmetry, I also learned about a notation system used by crystallographers and chemists to describe 1-, 2-, and 3-dimensional patterns. I will use this system to describe eleven of the seventeen planar symmetry groups, also known as wallpaper symmetries. The remaining six symmetry groups pertain to triangular motifs and are not included in this discussion.
