Conversely, if $C \simeq L(G)$ for some reflexive graph $G$, then the description of the arrows of $L(G)$ given in the previous paragraph shows that $C$ is free and that its set of generating $1$-cells is (isomorphic to) the non unital $1$-cells of $G$.

\begin{remark}

In other words, a category is free on a graph if and only if it is free on a reflexive graph. The difference between these two notions is at the level of morphisms: there are more morphisms of reflexive graphs because (generating) $1$\nbd{}cells may be sent to units. Hence, for a morphism of reflexing graphs $f : G \to G'$, the induced functor $L(f)$ is not necessarily rigid in the sense of Definition \ref{def:rigidmorphism}.
