|Mission patch for the Tianhe core module of China's Tiangong space station:
|Is there a Chinese equivalent patch to the Interkosmos space missions, if and when other nationals are offered perhaps eight day visits?
|This appears to be the China Space Station program patch, as worn by officials. Waiting for a better view...

|From journalist Andrew Jones (via Twitter), a different set of patch designs from the China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation (CASC):
Mission patches for Shenzhou-12, Tianhe, Tianzhou-2, which seem to fit together. Could the 11 missions for construction of the Chinese space station complete a circle? Lots of hard work ahead.
|I don't often see an attempt to create a mosaic from multiple patches. I have seen this done with patch sets produced for the Boy Scouts of America.
Each patch can stand on its own, but together it tells a story, creating a complete picture. The use of a modified hexagon shape is a nice creative surprise, appreciated when they are all placed together. I very much like this set; however, I would have reoriented the banner and ribbon in the upper-right patch to prevent breaking up the horizon and to orient the lettering to be consistent with the other two patches. Still, I would want to add it to my collection if and when it becomes available.
|Is it possible that the top patch is mirrored. Look at the date.
Still wouldn't fit correctly even if mirrored and oriented like the others.

|The China Manned Space Engineering Office released the mission logo for the Tianzhou-6 cargo flight to the China Space Station:
The design of the scheme marks the outline of the docking interface of the cargo spacecraft in an artistic way, which is more technological; the design of the space station uses different angles to better express and highlight the status of the current mission spacecraft, and uses the yellow outline to highlight the docking position of the current mission Tianzhou-6 spacecraft.
The white color scheme of the space station makes it stand out against the dark blue background; the design of the number font "6" of the mission spacecraft model highlights a sense of modernity and technology, implying speed and trajectory.
