[i]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 center of the instrument, symbolizing 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 symbolize the children 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.
