Abstract: Feza Gürsey was a brilliant physicist who loved symmetries and beautiful mathematical structures such as group theory and division algebras. In this centenary year, I shall briefly review some of his contributions and then zero-in on group theory and how it can give us a new perspective on a centuries-old topic, namely, fluid dynamics, including new facets such as the chiral magnetic effect.
