Imperial Emblem

The Imperial crest

The Imperial crest was the symbol of the Galactic Empire and used on many things including uniforms and consoles. It was a variant of the Bendu's Galactic Roundel used by the Galactic Republic during its waning days as their crest. By 130 ABY, the crest still was in use during the New Galactic Empire.

The crest was used on the symbol of a number of imperial organizations as well as on the bounty hunter House Benelex insignia.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit

The Imperial crest was designed by John Mollo, 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.
