A Quadrilateral in which a pair of opposite sides have the same length and are inclined at 60° to each other (or equivalently, satisfy ). Some interesting theorems hold for such quadrilaterals. Let be an equilic quadrilateral with and . Then

- 1. The Midpoints , , and of the diagonals and the side always determine an Equilateral Triangle.
- 2. If Equilateral Triangle is drawn outwardly on , then is also an Equilateral Triangle.
- 3. If Equilateral Triangles are drawn on , , and away from , then the three new Vertices , , and are Collinear.
