Given a symmetrical pattern
consisting of disjoint congruent symmetric motifs, a method is described for arriving at a coloring of
which is perfect and transitive under its global symmetry group G
and where the coloring of each motif is also perfect and transitive under its own group of symmetries (local symmetries of
). The coloring of
is coordinated with the property that the symmetry of
that is both a global and local symmetry effects the same permutation of the colors of
and the corresponding motif, respectively.
