What are the coordinates of the vertices of the figure?

The figure is a square SOTW with O being the center of origin and sides of length a. I have looked at some examples but this has me stumped. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Working from the center
the coordinates for O are (0,0)
Let's assume S is above O and the coordinates would be (0,a)  since each side is lenght a.
Then T would be (a,0) - a units to the right of O
and finally W would be (a,a), a units above T and to the right of S.
