Abstract: We prove an extension of Hardy's classical characterization of real Gaussians of the form $ e^{-\pi\alpha x^2}$, $ \alpha>0$, to the case of complex Gaussians in which $ \alpha$ is a complex number with positive real part. Such functions represent rotations in the complex plane of real Gaussians. A condition on the rate of decay of analytic extensions of a function $ f$ and its Fourier transform $ \widehat f$ along some pair of lines in the complex plane is shown to imply that $ f$ is a complex Gaussian.
