The Imperial Sunburst is the symbol of the Third Imperium established by Cleon I, the first Emperor, when the empire was proclaimed.

  • Images show him standing before the original banner with a golden yellow twenty-one rayed sunburst against a black background, representing Capital’s type G star against dark space.

Description (Specifications)[edit]

The original banner in the Imperial throne room is still black with a yellow sunburst. The Imperial Interstellar Scout Service uses a red sunburst; the Imperial Navy, yellow; the Imperial Army, black; the Imperial Marines, maroon.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

In 247, the Eliyoh (a nonhuman minor race) joined the Imperium. To that race the symbology was unimpressive. The Eliyoh vision centered in the far infrared, which resulted in distinction between the official colors of black and yellow being impossible. So the Empress Porfiria declared that the symbol would have no official color.
