I understand that all conservation laws have underlying symmetries and that all symmetries have corresponding conservation laws. From reading some popular science books (don't shoot me :P), I understand that conservation of energy, linear and angular momentum are a natural consequence of time translation symmetry, space translation symmetry and space rotation symmetry respectively.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

What symmetry does the conservation of charge follow from?

Thank you for your time, have a nice day.
