Below is a a magic square of order 36 made from consecutive number 1 to 1296. It contains 14 equal sums** bordered** magic squares of order 8 and 25 equal sums **pandiagonal** magic squares of order 4. If we consider 14 **pandiagonal** magic squares of order 4 appearing in 14 **bordered** magic squares of order 8, then there are 39 **pandiagonal** magic squares of order 4 with equal magic sums 2594. The magic square of order 36 is with magic sum 23346.

The 14 **bordered** magic squares of 8 represents twice number 2, i.e., year 22. Moreover, the design itself is 180 degrees rotatable (upside-down) but not the numbers.
