What exactly is the "Skywalker Emblem" on Anakin's Podracer, and how did it come to exist?

This report comes from the Official Site!

Answered by: Doug Chiang

The "Skywalker Emblem" originated from George's request for alien graphics to decorate each of the Podracers. In keeping to the style of "hot rods" influence, we created a Tatooine alphabet and numbering system. The symbol that we designed for Anakin was going to be his racing number, but eventually it became the symbol for Anakin.
