Abstract The study of billiards in rational polygons and of directional flows on flat surfaces is a fast-growing and fascinating area of research. A classical construction reduces the billiard system in a rational polygon – a polygon whose angles are π-rational – to a constant flow on a flat surface with conical singularities,
