Happy Star Wars Day everyone! May the Forth be with you...and my Star Wars paper art. I love the original Star Wars movies (episodes IV, V, and VI) so I decided to make pieces with four of the primary symbols from the movies. I did include the Galactic Republic which is in episodes I, II, and III because, in looking up the symbols and doing some research, I found that the Galactic Empire's branding was designed as a evolution of the Galactic Republic's. Each piece was drawn freehand and then cut out of a 1.5" circle of paper so they are not exact.
We have to start with the Rebels. The Rebel insignia is the starbird and it can be seen in original movies, as well as the latest addition, episode 7. Created from the disparate groups resisting the Galactic Empire's rule, the Rebels fight against the oppressive rule of the Empire.
