Baiocchi Figures for Polykagomes

A Baiocchi figure is a figure formed by joining copies of a polyform and having the maximal symmetry for the polyform's class. For polykagomes, that means the symmetry of a regular hexagon, or 6-way rotary with reflection. Claudio Baiocchi proposed the idea in January 2008. Baiocchi figures first appeared in Erich Friedman's Math Magic for that month.

A polykagome is a polyform composed of adjacent cells on the Trihexagonal Grid:
