Thanks for the kind words about the design.

Not much to say really about symbolism. The patch depicts a Russian cosmonaut in an Orlan suit and a U.S. astronaut in an EMU performing an EVA with oversized tools. The idea was to illustrate the assembly and maintenance of the ISS.

The ISS is shown on orbit around Earth with the Moon and Mars depicted to illustrate that the research conducted will enable those exploration missions.

The five stars represent the five space agencies involved: NASA, ESA, CSA, JAXA and Roscosmos. The flags represent the 15 partner nations.

I like the similarity to the ISS nations round patch which also has five stars, but its meaning escaped my attention. I did notice the two blue swoosh like elements arcing under "Station."

I like the design.
