Soyuz MS-21


The general design of the Soyuz MS-21 patch is based on the logo of the Bauman University where all crew members studied; the launch is dubbed 'Baumanski start'. The portrait represents Sergei Korolev, after whom the spacecraft is named. Patch designed by commander Artemyev, Copyright Roscosmos

ISS-67


The Expedition 67 patch celebrates our on-going international mission to conduct science and research to improve life on Earth and extend our presence in the solar system. The International Space Station (ISS) is poised in the foreground to recognize the contributions of the thousands of engineers, scientists, researchers, trainers, fabricators, leaders, and dreamers who have made this miracle of engineering and sustained operations possible. Our beautiful home, the planet Earth, serves as a central element of the patch, just as it is central to the ISS’s mission. While we endeavor to unlock the mysteries of the universe, we are also committed to better understanding the Earth and how we can protect it for future generations. Three stars shine bright on a field of black, representing the United States, Russia, and Italy, the three countries with crewmembers on this particular expedition. The numerous stars further scattered across the night sky represent the additional countries that comprise the ISS partnership. The life-giving rays of the sun represent our crew’s families, whose love and support make this endeavor possible.

Shenzhou-13


The Shenzhou-13 spacecraft is the second three-taikonaut crew to the China Space Station. The overall shape of the Shenzhou 13 manned mission logo uses a circle to express the traditional Chinese concept of "a place with a round sky". The color is mainly red and blue. Red represents Chinese red and the passion of space exploration, and blue symbolizes the vast universe and scientific exploration. The Shenzhou 13 spacecraft is depicted docking to the space station ant the beginning of a six-month mission. The background is deep space, and the surrounding stars symbolize the astronauts who performed previous missions, the logo of China's Manned Spaceflight Agency, and the part of the Earth showing the location of China. The olive leaf symbolizes China's policy of peaceful development.

Cosmic Kiss


The name of European Space Agency (ESA) astronaut Matthias Maurer's first mission to the International Space Station, Cosmic Kiss, is a declaration of love for space. The Cosmic Kiss patch takes inspiration from the Nebra sky disc, the oldest known realistic illustration of the night sky – as well as the Pioneer plaques and Voyager Golden Records that were sent into the unknown carrying messages from Earth. Like the Nebra sky disc, the patch features several cosmic elements including Earth, the Moon and the Pleiades star cluster. It also depicts Mars, one of ESA's three key destinations for exploration over the next 10 years, as a small red dot beckoning in the distance. Earth is shown borderless and backlit, with only a delicate line of atmosphere visible. The most prominent feature is a simplified, almost heart-like International Space Station. This is connected through a human heartbeat that stretches from Earth to the Moon. This heartbeat symbolizes the human presence and passion that propels exploration forward and connects us to the Universe, as well as the vital life science experiments the Space Station enables. The Cosmic Kiss mission patch features black representing the Universe, red for for love and passion, gold, the color of the stars and a white heartbeat for technology and scientific progress, bringing light into the dark. Cosmic Kiss launched as part of NASA's Crew-3 in October 2021.
