For a given sector a selfsimilar expanding solution to a crystalline flow is constructed. The solution is shown to be unique. Because of selfsimilarity the problem is reduced to solve a system of algebraic equations of degree two. The solution is constructed by a method of continuity and obtained by solving associated ordinary differential equations. The selfsimilar expanding solution is useful to construct a crystalline flow from an arbitrary polygon not necessarily admissible.
