Summary[edit]

Most common form of the "Flower of Life" hexagonal pattern (where the center of each circle is on the circumference of six surrounding circles of the same diameter), made up of 19 complete circles and 36 partial circular arcs, enclosed by a large circle. To see a form of the flower of life pattern composed of complete circles only (making clear the way in which the pattern is constructed), view Image:Flower-of-Life-61circles.png . For a large "carpet" of the flower of life pattern, go to Image:Flower-of-Life-91circles36arcs.png .
