Interestingly, it appears Zhai did not wear the Shenzhou VII mission patch on his Feitian suit. He wore the Chinese flag on his left shoulder:

...and this patch on his right shoulder:

Liu did wear the Shenzhou VII patch on his Orlan's right shoulder:

It is possible that Zhai had the mission patch under his display and control module (DCM), but I haven't seen imagery to suggest that.

Here are the best views of Zhai's PLSS that I could find among the available video:

The patch sewn to the upper right does appear to be the mission patch. The patch on the left might be the program patch.
