Grogu / Yoda for Ukraine

Din Grogu, also known as "Baby Yoda," is a character from the Disney Star Wars show The Mandalorian. Memes about Grogu or Yoda became popular after the publication of an image of Ukrainian military commander-in-chief Valerii Zaluzhnyi that was designed to quell Russian-backed rumors that Zaluzhnyi was no longer alive or in charge of the military effort. In the image, Zaluzhnyi is seen wearing a patch of Grogu on his army fatigues. As reported by Reuters (linked below), this image led to the proliferation of memes about Grogu in a variety of formats, such as replacing the famous Motherland Monument in Kyiv.
