Equiangular means "having equal angles" or "with all angles equal" or the like. An equilateral triangle (a triangle having all 3 sides the same length) is equiangular. Each of it's interior angles is 60 degrees. A quadrilateral (a 4-sided figure) that is equiangular would have to have each of its interior angles equal to 90 degrees, and the quadrilateral would then have to be a rectangle.
