COMMENTS
For a definition and examples of this problem see the comment section of A276449.
The present sequence a(n) gives the number of 2-orbits of such 2-color boards with n squares of one color under C_4.

FORMULA
a(n) = (binomial(2*i*i,i) - A276449(n))/2, for n = 2*i.
a(n) = (binomial(2*i*(i+1),i) - A276449(n))/2, for n = 2*i+1.
EXAMPLE
n = 4: one of the two 2-orbits is (o white, + black)
+ o + o o o o +
o o o o + o o o
o o o o o o o +
o + o + + o o o,
and one can take the first one as a representative.
For n = 3 there are a(3) = 2 2-orbits, represented by
+ o o o o o
o + o and + + +
o o + o o o.
The orbit structure for n=3 is 1^0 2^2 4^20; see A276449(3) = 0, a(3) = 2, A276452(3) = 20.
For the 12 2-orbits for n=4, see the representatives given in the link.
