A regular hexagon has all sides lengths equal. It has reflective symmetry about each of its 3 main diagonals, and about lines joining the midpoints of opposite sides. It has rotational symmetry about its centre (one sixth of a turn leaves it unchanged). Each side subtends the same angle to the centre point.

A, the largest width
