Phoenix Squadron was an elite starfighter unit and part of a cell of resistance fighters who rebelled against the Galactic Empire in the years prior to the Battle of Yavin. The squadron was led by Commander Jun Sato. Phoenix Squadron piloted A-wing starfighters and often fly side by side with Hera Syndullas Ghost freighter.
To celebrate the tenacity of Phoenix Squadron, as well as Syndulla's promotion to Phoenix Leader, Sabine Wren created a painting as a gift for her friend. However, the artwork caught the eye of Mon Mothma, founder of the Alliance, who thought it a perfect representation of the effectiveness of rebel fighter forces. Mothma then asked Wren to complete the painting and add the phrase "Fly For Freedom!" as a call to action. The final artwork became a power recruitment tool for the Alliance.

They shall be reborn in ashes, just like the Phoenix. At least in spirit.

Great work and I could so see Sabine creating a painting like this as, when she's not blasting Imperials or blowing things to kingdom come, she's an incredibly talented artist. Just as you are Enduron.

I don't disagree with you. Sabine Wren is quite a talented artist but I think her talent lies more with more traditional oils, paints, and graffiti than computer-generated artwork. But I get exactly what you're saying.

Sabine was a damn good artist, when she wasn't doing graffiti.  Now the next story line of the Star Wars series, with the end of the Skywalker saga, is the hunt for Eliza Bridger.

Uh just wait until the whole entire Skywalker series is officially finished okay?

The sooner the better.  Still want Ezra back, dammit!

I Know, but just like Jyn Erso Ezra Bridger is now with The Force.

Rather reluctantly at first, but becoming more comfortable with it as time went on.
