Abstract: The quanum levels and corresponding vortex states in nanoscale superconductors are investigated within generalized Bogolubov-de Gennes theory. For symmetric (square-shaped) samples thermodynamically stable vortex phases form symmetry-consistent patterns and no transition to conventional Abrikosov-like vortex patterns occurs till T=0K for sizes not exceeding 25 nm. For vorticity inline image a giant vortex is stabilized at temperatures in the vicinity of inline image, which transforms into a giant antivortex inline image and four normal vortices with lowering the temperature. On the other hand, the vortex pattern for vorticity inline image corresponds to an antivortex inline image and four normal vortices in the whole temperature domain.
