In this talk, some nonlocal planar cuvature flows will be introduced, including the area-preserving flow and the length-preserving one, etc. The locally convex initial curve could be embedded or immersed. Some sharp conditions on immersed initial curves are established to yield the singularity of the flow at a finte time. In addition, the symmetry of curves are found to play an important role in the flow's evolution.
