New families of simple, double and triple periodic symmetric retrograde orbits in various ring configurations are presented in this paper, providing new information on the dynamic behavior of such many-body systems. The evolution of the characteristic curves and of their orbits-members is discussed as well as their most prominent qualitative aspects.
