We present the complete flavor SU(3) decomposition of decay amplitudes for decays of the triplet (B+u, B0d, B0s) of B mesons nonleptonically into two pseudoscalar mesons. This analysis holds for arbitrarily broken SU(3) and can be used to generate amplitude relations when physical arguments permit one to neglect or relate any of the reduced amplitudes.
