Well said Erik. From the comments from some people it's a wonder ShuttleDiscovery didn't just give up! I really like the idea and could really see it on a crew members spacesuit.

And Ken I like your daughter's idea. There is a lot to be said for a simple and beautiful design.

Following a live link-up with the ISS crew, Roscosmos announced in Mission Control Moscow that Anna Chibiskova (12) of Moscow is the winner of the "Let's design a logo for the Soyuz TMA-14 crew" contest. Her painting of two hands holding the Earth was chosen by commander Gennadi Padalka as the central element for his crew patch.

Both a neutral version without names (Russian crews are only officially confirmed shortly before launch) and one including that of Padalka, Michael Barratt and Charles Simonyi were released on the the Roscosmos website today.

Second and third prize winners in the contest were Kaitlin Riley (12) from New York, U.S.A., and Pyatkin Stanislav (11) from Uglegorsk, the residential area of a former strategic missile base in the Amur Region in Eastern Russia. Now known as Vostochny Cosmodrome, it is slated to eventually replace Baikonur as the primary launch site for Russian manned space missions.

An extra winner was also announced: Roma Kuznetsov from Kazakhstan, the country where Baikonur is situated. "Kazakhstan is our reliable partner in space programs, so let a boy from Kazakhstan become one of the winners", according to Roscosmos head Anatoly Perminov, who, for the first time in Russian space history, also headed a ceremony in which a Russian flight patch was officially approved.

The Ria-Novosti press agency has a small movie about the events in Mission Control Korolev. A glimpse of the patch ceremony can be seen near the end of the clip.

Thanks Erik, for that clip.

Just before the winning patches are shown on the flat panel displays at the ceremony, they appear to show a photograph of a Mercury-Atlas launching and then Gordon Cooper. I wonder, did Roscosmos give credit to Cooper during the ceremony for originating the idea of crew mission patches?

I can't believe that star shaped patch came second! I thought the 1st and 3rd place designs were far better..

Robert, yes, they did in a way credit Cooper. I understand they showed this movie.

In it, Gemini-5 is mentioned as the first space patch.

Apparently, they do not know much about their own history in this regard. Valentina Tereschkova was the first to wear an embroidered logo (under her spacesuit)!

Maybe Luc can tell a bit more about that.

In this video clip, Soyuz 19 was mentioned as the first space patch in Soviet/Russian side. This patch was painted by Aleksei Leonov and both it's crew members worn it.

Yes, you are correct. Today there are many commemorative patches issued after mission and didn't worn by crew.

This Soyuz TMA-14 design will definitely be worn by the crew; the production of the embroidered version is underway.

Anyone have a hi-res version of the 'name' patch art? The spacefacts.de site has, but they've taken to watermarking their images, rendering them useless.

ShuttleDiscovery, could not find your e-mail address... but here is a page from a Russian spaceflight magazine that might interest you!

Some nice pictures at the Roscosmos website, with a story of how the patch came to be. English version will probably be available soon.

Something amazing arrived in the post today. A signed TMA-14 crew photo!

I can't tell from the Russian address but I'm assuming it's a runner up prize for the competition!

Yes, it is a "runner up prize". My own daughter Heleen (4 at the time, now 5 - she was the youngest contestant) participated in the TMA-14 competition and also got the signed picture some time ago. We framed it and since the day it arrived in the mail, she sleeps some 5 centimeters away from it.
