Abstract: We find all stable projective planes with finite topology which are properly embedded in $\Bbb R^3/\varGamma $, where $\varGamma $ is a discrete subgroup of translations in $\Bbb R^3$. Here stable means second order minimum of the area. The surfaces we obtain are a quotient of the helicoid and quotients of the doubly periodic Scherk surfaces.
