The Imperial salute was a form of greeting used within COMPNOR and, to a lesser extent, within the Imperial Military. A soldier using the Imperial salute stood at attention and held out his right arm with the lower arm raised in a 45 degrees angle. The hand was held open, showing the palm. This gesture was typically accompanied by the phrases "Hail the Empire!", "Hail the Emperor!", or some variant thereof.
