We study non-Abelian flavor symmetries on orbifolds, S1/Z 2 and T2/Z3. Our extra dimensional models realize DN, Σ(2N2), Δ(3N2) and Δ(6N2) including A4 and S4. In addition, one can also realize their subgroups such as QN, T7, etc. The S3 flavor symmetry can be realized on both S1/Z 2 and T2/Z3 orbifolds.
