# what are kanji that can be flipped, but not rotated?

Plenty of kanji are symmetrical on the y-axis and x-axis. Plenty of kanji are symmetrical only on the y-axis.

What are some kanji that are only symmetrical on the x-axis? I don't know one.

What kanji change into another kanji when they are rotated and/or flipped? Here is one that I know:

-
「曰」. Which is not the same as 「日」. Also, 「人」 is not symmetrical, only its gothic form is (its mirror is 「入」). – Ignacio Vazquez-Abrams Oct 19 '13 at 1:57
Sometimes symmetry depends on how you write them. I've seen people write 女 in a way that's left-right symmetrical, for example. – snailplane Oct 19 '13 at 3:53
@snailboat: You mean when it looks like without the lower horizontal stroke, and strokes barely cross at the bottom right corner? – istrasci Oct 19 '13 at 22:00
@kinyo: FYI, flipping vertically is not the same rotating 180°. Those two actions will only produce the same result if the character is symmetric about the vertical axis. Rotating the letter N by 180° will give the same letter, but flipping it vertically will give и . – istrasci Oct 19 '13 at 22:18
@istrasci Ah, I saw the near-symmetrical 女 again and I took a picture! i.stack.imgur.com/CyTar.png – snailplane Oct 29 '13 at 21:32
