"You can stand to see the Imperial flag reign across the galaxy?"

The Imperial crest

The Imperial crest was the six-spoked symbol of Sheev Palpatine's Galactic Empire. It adorned many things Imperial, from uniforms and starships to flags and propaganda posters. It was a modified version of the eight-spoked roundel that the Galactic Republic used as their crest[1] during the Clone Wars.[2]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Imperial insignia was designed by John Mollo, who was the costume designer for Star Wars: Episode IV A New Hope and Star Wars: Episode V The Empire Strikes Back. In the Q&A feature of the 98th issue of Star Wars Insider magazine, Mollo revealed that he based the Imperial insignia on shapes used in 18th century fortifications.[3]
