Pictured above is the most familiar hexagonal tessellation. I’ve found some additional tessellations which use equilateral (but non-equiangular) hexagons, and have radial symmetry. They appear, using various coloring-schemes, below.

Very nice Robert. I’ve not seen anything like these before. Are all the polygons identical?

Thanks! Within each tessellation, the answer to your question in “yes.” I also think an infinite number of these can be made, simply by repeatedly narrowing the hexagons used, so that different numbers of them meet at the central point. The usual tessellation uses 3, so I’ve simply added 4, 5, and 8 to this list.
