Soyuz MS-08


The Soyuz MS-08 crew patch design is shaped like the spacecraft's descent module as it looks during the landing phase of the ship's mission. Within, the crew is depicted in silhouettes as they approach their launch vehicle. A moon is shown behind the launch complex, representing the dream of manned missions into deeper space. Six stars in the background are for the six-member ISS crew. The 'Science' statue located in Baikonur and the tulip from the old coat of arms of Leninsk town symbolize the significance of the Russian launch base. The international space station is shown in bright yellow as the spacecraft's orbital destination. The crew names are shown in a semicircle at the top of the design, while the colours of the Russian and US flags are shown at the bottom, flanking the Roscosmos logo, underneath the spacecraft's name and crew expedition numbers.

Soyuz MS-07


The crew patch is depicted in the shape of an an armillary sphere: a centuries-old tool that is supposed to represent the heavens. The Soyuz MS-07 spacecraft is shown flying high over the Earth in the centre of the instrument, symbolising man's continued presence in orbit. In the background, the Moon is shown, representing future aspiration for human activities in space. The constellation of Capricorn is represented in the top of the design, with the three larger stars representing the crew members. The groups of two and three smaller stars symbolise the childeren fathered by spacecraft commander Shkaplerov and American astronaut Tingle. The crew's names are positioned along the border of the patch together with their national flags. On the design's horizontal ring, the name of the spacecraft and the Roscosmos logo are shown.
