Gimp question

Hello, I have a question. Is there an easy way to create a duplicate of a selection in gimp? Because I have this “X” and I want to make 1 more of the exact same “X” on the same image. I have selected the “X”. How would I duplicate it?

Copy and paste. Conversely you can duplicate it’s layer and have a new layer to work with. Be sure to anchor the selection after the paste.
