# Uniform coloring

Uniform coloring

In geometry, a uniform coloring is a property of a uniform figure (uniform tiling or uniform polyhedron) that is colored to be vertex-transitive. Different symmetries can be expressed on the same geometric figure with the faces following different uniform color patterns.

A "uniform coloring" can be specificed by listing the different colors by indices around a vertex figure.

n-uniform figures

In addition, an "n"-uniform coloring is a property of a "uniform figure" which has "n" types vertex figure, that are collectively vertex transitive.
