The Republic crest

The Republic crest, also referred to as the Republic cog, was the ancient eight-spoked sigil of the Galactic Republic. With the outbreak of the Clone Wars between the Republic and the Confederacy of Independent Systems, the crest came to be featured more prominently than before, appearing on brand new war machines, flags and banners. Eventually, Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine turned the Republic into the First Galactic Empire,[1] and the Republic crest was modified into the Imperial crest.[2]

It dated back to the study of numerology, in which the number nine—symbolized by eight spokes joined to one disk—signified the benevolent presence of the Force in a united galaxy.[3]
