The recent proposal of Romero-Isart et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 111, 145304 (2013)] to utilize the vortex lattice phases of superconducting materials to prepare a lattice for ultracold-atom-based quantum emulators raises the need to create and control vortex lattices of different symmetries. Here we propose a mechanism by which honeycomb, hexagonal, square, and kagome vortex lattices could be created in superconducting systems with multiscale intervortex interactions. Multiple scales of the intervortex interaction can be created and controlled in layered systems made of different superconducting materials or with differing interlayer spacings.
