A hexaflake is a fractal constructed by iteratively exchanging each hexagon by a flake of seven hexagons; it is a special case of the n-flake. As such, a hexaflake would have 7n-1 hexagons in its nth iteration. Its boundary is the von Koch flake, and contains an infinite number of Koch snowflakes (black or white). Its Hausdorff dimension is equal to ln(7)/ln(3), approximately 1.7712.
It is also the projection of the cantor cube onto the plane orthogonal to its main diagonal.
