# C++ Program to print Swastika Pattern

In this C++ tutorial, we will see how to print Swastik pattern from given number n, the pattern of n height using loops.

Note- N, an odd number (>=5).

## Print Swastik Pattern

Divide the given pattern into two parts from the middle. Now do the work of these parts separately and print the required pattern accordingly.

```n=7
*     * * * *
*     *
*     *
* * * * * * *
*     *
*     *
* * * *     *```

#### Code:

First, we calculate mid because it should be divided into 5 parts – using nested loops.

1. Top line – our loop print top line if(i==1) we print * and then when j>mid.
2. Between Top and Middle – we print *  for only when j==1 and j== mid.
3. Middle line- we print the whole line with *.
4. Between Middle and Bottom – we print * for h== mid and j==n.
5. Bottom Line – we print * for j<=mid
```#include<iostream>
using namespace std;
int main(){
int n=11;
int mid= (n/2)+1;
for(int i=1;i<=n;i++){

//top line
if(i==1){
cout<<"* ";
for(int j=2;j<=n;j++){
if(j<mid){
cout<<"  ";
}
else{
cout<<"* ";
}
}
cout<<endl;
}
//between top and middle
if(i!=1 && i<mid){
for(int j=1;j<=n;j++){
if(j==1 || j==mid){
cout<<"* ";
}
else{
cout<<"  ";
}
}
cout<<endl;
}
//middle line
if(i==mid){
for(int j=1;j<=n;j++){
cout<<"* ";
}
cout<<endl;
}
//between middle and bottom
if(i>mid && i!=n){
for(int j=1;j<=n;j++){
if(j==mid || j==n){
cout<<"* ";
}
else{
cout<<"  ";
}
}
cout<<endl;

}
//bottom line
if(i==n){
for(int j=1;j<=n-1;j++){
if(j<=mid){
cout<<"* ";
}
else{
cout<<"  ";
}

}
cout<<"* ";

}
}
}```

Now its time to run our program. So let’s see what we will see after we run the program:

```*         * * * * * *
*         *
*         *
*         *
*         *
* * * * * * * * * * *
*         *
*         *
*         *
*         *
* * * * * *         *```

We can see that our Swastik pattern done correctly with the C++ program and we can see the result in the console.
