Senate badges were identification documents carried by individuals affiliated with the Senate of the Galactic Empire, including senators like Leia Organa.


Senate badges were documents issued to personnel of the Imperial Senate, the legislative assembly of Sheev Palpatine's Galactic Empire, marking their affiliation with the institution. The badge itself was a rectangular ID card with rounded corners that bore an Imperial cog and a picture of the holder, and listed their name, title, sector of origin, and species all written using the High Galactic alphabet. It also bore the phrase "Imperial Senate" in the bottom right corner.[1]


One holder of a Senate badge was Leia Organa, crown princess of the planet Alderaan, who had succeeded her adopted father Bail Organa as senator of the Alderaan sector. Several decades later, a copy of that badge was included in Organa's biography, which was written by an archival droid during the conflict between the Resistance and the First Order.[1]
