Four axes of symmetry: vertical axis, horizontal, positive diagonal (bottom left to top right) and negative diagonal (top left to bottom right).

In fact, any straight line through the centre of the square divides it into two halves so there are an infinite number of ways, not just four.

And the above are without looking at symmetric curves through the centre of the square.
