This paper presents a new generative approach for generating two-dimensional signals having both a low peak factor (crest factor) and a flat power spectrum. The flat power spectrum provides zero auto-correlation, except at the zero shift. The proposed method is a generative scheme, not a search method, and produces a two-dimensional signal of size 2(2n1+1)2(2n2+1)2 for an arbitrary pair of positive integers n1 and n2 without any computer search. The peak factor of the proposed signal is equal to the peak factor of a single trigonometric function.
