A Square Tile: Upper Primary Mathematics Competition Question

You have two rectangular tiles and wish to place them inside the larger square. One tile is blue and red, the other is blue and yellow.

How many different patterns can you make?

How many unique patterns can you make?  In this case, treat all rotational symmetries as one unique pattern; just as you would if it was a real tile that you could rotate in your hand.
