1) We begin with a 200 x 200-pixel square in which we've made each 100 x 100-pixel corner a different color. 2) Then we make a copy of this square, reduce to 100 x 100 pixels and rotate it 180 degrees (or flip horizontally, and again, vertically).  
3) And then just paste it right in the middle of the original square, and flatten the layers. 4) Now, make another copy of this image and rotate it 180 degrees. Then twist the center (in Photoshop, use Filter: Distort: Twirl). I've used a 57 degree angle here.
