This seems to be the first Shenzhou mission patch. Only fuzzy photo's are known at the moment, and it is unclear whether this was ever intented to be a manned mission patch. It is even difficult to determine if the small letters at the bottom of the patch read 'SZ-3' or 'SZ-4'. The patch was flown in space on a 'spacesuit' of a mannequin inside the DM of one of the unmanned testflights.
