Recent work has shown that if an isostatic bar and joint framework possesses
non-trivial symmetries, then it must satisfy some very simply stated
restrictions on the number of joints and bars that are `fixed' by various
symmetry operations of the framework. For the group $C_3$ which describes
3-fold rotational symmetry in the plane, we verify the conjecture proposed in
[4] that these restrictions on the number of fixed structural components,
together with the Laman conditions, are also sufficient for a framework with
$C_3$ symmetry to be isostatic, provided that its joints are positioned as
generically as possible subject to the given symmetry constraints. In addition,
we establish symmetric versions of Henneberg's Theorem and Crapo's Theorem for
$C_3$ which provide alternate characterizations of `generically' isostatic
graphs with $C_3$ symmetry. As shown in [19], our techniques can be extended to
establish analogous results for the symmetry groups $C_2$ and $C_s$ which are
generated by a half-turn and a reflection in the plane, respectively.
