|ed zigoy||Is there a Chinese equivalent patch to the Interkosmos space missions, if and when other nationals are offered perhaps eight day visits?|
|lucspace||This appears to be the China Space Station program patch, as worn by officials. Waiting for a better view...|

|Robert Pearlman||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.
|SXPatches||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.
|vanerie||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.
