Still, Novosti Kosmonavtiki drew up a design for an EO-19 patch and faxed it to the Netherlands. Luc van den Abeelen improved the composition of the parachute lines and the Shuttle, after which Aviation Patch Supplies produced the embroidered patch. The crew did have the patches with them during the mission - they were not attached to any clothing or flight equipment, but we did see a flown and stamped version.

Stewart Aviation got hold of the original design (probably through Vadim Molchanov) and produced their own souvenir version. Main difference is the composition and the color of the parachute lines, which are black instead of white.
