Abstract: If a convex set $ S$ is $ 3$-fold symmetric about a point $ 0 \in S$, then any $ 3$-star contained in $ S$ with vertex 0 is no smaller than any other parallel $ 3$-star contained in $ S$. In this paper, among other results, we establish the converse. Consequently, we find two measures of $ n$-fold symmetry, one for $ n = 2,3$ and the other for each $ n \geqq 2$.
