Introduction

Insignia, logos and symbols were used throughout the galaxy as an affirmation of allegiance to an organization, a token of personal power or a sign of status.

Bendu/Empire

The origin of some symbols can be traced back through time. The Bendu symbol of a circle connected by eight even spokes was later adopted by the Galactic Republic and subsequently was the basis of the Imperial crest. In turn the Imperial symbol was incorporated into the insignia of other organizations, such as House Benelex and Ante-Endor Association, in order to show allegiance to the Empire.

Alliance Starbird

The Alliance Starbird or the Phoenix was used by the Rebel Alliance, most often observed on Rebel Pilot helmets. The first possible appearance of this symbol was on the ruins of Rhen Var which were thought to predate the Old Sith Wars. Furthermore the symbol also resembled the emblem of the Jedi Order. The Alliance Starbird has also been incorporated into organizations and units linked to the Rebellion such as the Rogue Squadron crest, the Insignia of the New Republic and the Novahawk.

Sith

Throughout the history of the Sith its members, rulers and acolytes have adorned themselves and their vessels with symbols. During the Old Republic era Sith would Tattoo symbols on their foreheads while later the tradition appeared to be to cover their entire bodies with elaborate tatoos.

Pirates

The most identifiable symbol of the pirate was the Blazing Claw. Over time the symbol was adapted by different individuals but the basic identity of the symbol remained — a claw or claws surrounded by flames. Other pirate organizations used images of a skull such as the Eyttyrmin Batiiv and Bloody Bones.

Corporate

Companies used a diverse array of symbols to represent their organization and products. Variations of the parent symbols were often used for subsidiaries, as with Santhe Corporation and its holdings.
