[i]In November 2017, Fyodor Yurchikhin proposed Alexander Misurkin to develop a Victory logo for EVA-44 (extra vehicular activity, or spacewalk). This idea has been supported by Misurkin and all Spacesuit Art Project members.
Misurkin proposed to use as a baseline one of the paintings on the basis of which the "Victory" spacesuit has been created. He selected Lyudmila Norsoyan's painting. Liudmila's personal battle against cancer developed in parallel with the "Victory" space suit's development.
Lyudmila, being a famous designer, still associates herself with a little girl in her heart dreaming of spaceflights. She sent to the cosmonauts who made her dream come true the gentle Earth greetings — a balcony-grown rose.
"I'm on the Moon like on the swings dreaming of life and offering a rose to the stars — sending it to the Universe sounding of the earth expectations where our 'Victory' is going! Great destiny of a simple spacesuit to become a divine illustration of the will to live, belief, hope and love drawn by the tender hands of little princes and princesses of our planet. And a great destiny of each of us — through surgeries, drips, chemotherapy and radiation – opened, with smile and tears, desperation and dreams – to win living and enjoying each day!" said Lyudmila Norsoyan.
At the request of Fyodor Yurchikhin and Alexander Misurkin, Luc van den Abeelen, a Dutch painter, started a logo elaboration. He has already created quite a few amount of logos for the "Soyuz" spacecraft crews, ISS crews and EVAs.
Luc made the logo very quickly, just in two to three days and coordinated it with Misurkin. That was his second logo he coordinated with a cosmonaut being at ISS.
The logo is a circle with the yellow border. It has a navy blue. There is a Little Prince holding a rose in his hand and dressed in the "Victory" spacesuit in the center of the logo. The name "Victory" is located in the upper left corner. The wording of Alexander Nevsky — "God dwells not in strength, but in truth" became a motto of this logo at suggestion of Misurkin.
"Even if your enemy is a serious disease, even if this is a very powerful and terrible enemy as cancer, don't be scared and don't give up! Think only that the truth is on your side — you have a right for to live. Fight steadily and you'll win!" said Misurkin.[/i]
