A novel theorem linking reflectional symmetry and rotational symmetry has been established in this paper. This theorem constrains that, for a rotationally symmetric image with K≥1 fold(s) (K-RSI), its number of reflection-symmetric axes must be either K or zero. The novel constraint theorem provides the guidance for the procedure of symmetry detection. It has been demonstrated by the experiments included in this paper.
