An octagon is a 2-dimensional polygon with eight edges. The Bowers acronym for an octagon is oc.

Symbols

Symbols for the octagon include:

  • x8o (regular)
  • x4x (ditetragon)
  • ko4ok&#zx (tetrambus)
  • xwwx&#zx (edge first)
  • xw wx&#zx (rectangle symmetry)

Structure and Sections

The regular octagon has each angle at 135 degrees. It can be seen as a truncated square.
