The sigil of the New Republic

The government of the New Republic used different sigils during its thirty-year tenure. One, the "starburst insignia," depicted a starburst behind the old phoenix crest of the Alliance to Restore the Republic.[1] One possible color scheme for that sigil was blue crest over yellow starburst.[2] The carbon-lace armors worn by the members of the New Republic Special Forces were marked with the starburst insignia on the shoulders.[3] Around 34 ABY,[4] that sigil also appeared on the wings of the T-85 X-wings of the New Republic Defense Fleet, and on the uniforms and helmets worn by the New Republic pilots.[5]

Another sigil was the "rounded insignia." A more understated emblem, it was also based on the Alliance starbird, set within a circle of fifteen stars that represented unity. It was found among security forces.[1] Around 9 ABY,[6] a yellow version of the rounded insignia notably appeared on distinct types of security droids.[7]

Behind the scenes[]

The "starburst insignia" of the New Republic was created by Christopher M. Zucker, a designer working for Del Rey, to be featured in the chapter headings of the novel Aftermath.[8] The "rounded insignia" originated in Heir to the Empire Sourcebook, a 1992 supplement to the Legends Star Wars: The Roleplaying Game published by West End Games.[9]
