The term equiangular indicates that, in some figures, the angles are equal. It can be used to describe polygons, such as an equiangular pentagon.
The fact that the angles of a figure are congruent does not automatically mean that the sides are.

Two equiangular octagons, one regular, one not:
If a quadrilateral is equiangular, it is a rectangle.
In the case of triangles, being equiangular requires that the triangle also be equilateral. That is, every equiangular triangle is a regular triangle. However, this is not the case for all polygons. For example, a rectangle is equiangular — all four angles are 90° — but need not be square (need not have all four sides the same length). Thus, not all equiangular quadrilaterals are equilateral and so are not all regular.
The prefix equi- is from Latin and means ‘equal’.
