A square is a 2 dimensional shape, but it can be divided into 2 or more triangles, or more smaller squares, or hexagons and triangles, or octagons and triangles, or really any rectilinear figure and triangles.

If you mean what two dimensional shapes can compromise the surface of a cube, or rectangular prism, then you want squares.

if you mean what 1 dimensional figures can make the perimeter of a square, then you want lines (straight lines).
