The snowflake laser is proposed  a new class of unstable resonator whose feedback mirror has the shape of the von Koch snowflake. Theoretical analysis is undertaken with two-dimensional virtual source theory, and predictions of novel mode patterns, eigenvalue spectra, and convergence phenomena are presented.
