A white flag used at the Tambor Deep Space Centre

A white flag was a device used to signify surrender or ceasefire in warfare. During the Clone Wars, a white flag was on occasion used by the Grand Army of the Republic.

A white flag was usually crafted with battlefield debris in a rough manner. When a belligerent showed the flag, it was customary for the enemy to capture them as prisoners of war rather than massacring them. At times, a white flag was also used to perform a false surrender, baiting the enemy into a sense a safety.


During the Siege of the Tambor Deep Space Centre, Republic forces surrendered to Separatist forces using a white flag. However, the surrender was not genuine, and the gloating CIS leader was captured when clone troopers and Jedi pounced on his guards.
