Art director Scott Kelly has painstakingly designed a flag for every planet ever featured in the Star Wars Universe. This includes planets featured in the films, comic books, animated series and video games making a total of 103 flag designs, but he still has a few more to go before finishing the series.
“The designs are in keeping with a lot of the basic rules of flag design known as vexillology,” explains Scott. “I created the designs by closely looking the historical, economic, physical, political and societal attributes of the planets. From there I took creative liberty to make them as striking and plausible as possible.”
Made up of chevrons, symbols and stripes, the jewel-coloured flags each come with a description of the planet and some insight behind the design. “The information on each flag came from the humorously named and beautifully thorough website, Wookieepedia,” Scott says.
