There is probably information about this out there, but does anyone know why the novels and Marvel comics have the squadron Luke is part of in the Battle of Yavin as Blue and in the movie it's Red? Is it because of the use of blue screen for special effects? The X-Wings seem to have Red on them. Posting for the promotion of discussion.

Now don't quote me on this, but I believe originally they WERE Blue Squadron and it was changed for the final product. I think you're right, had something to do with the effects. So the Marvel comics and novel probably were just finished before the film came out and didn't have time to alter it to Red. But that's also why they used Blue in Rogue One, it's kind of an Easter Egg.
