Abstract

With an increase in size, configurations of points and lines in the plane usually become complicated and hard to analyze. The ``floral'' configurations we are introducing here represent a new type that makes accessible and visually intelligible even configurations of considerable size. This is achieved by combining a large degree of symmetry with a hierarchical construction. Depending on the details of the interdependence of these aspects, there are several subtypes that are described and investigated.
