ISS Expedition 24/25 flight engineer Fyodor Yurchkhin has a personal patch, which can be seen affixed above his crew quarters.

Anyone know what the symbolism behind the patch is yet?

We received the design only six weeks before launch, so there was not a lot of time to get into the details.

I do remember though that the patch shows a young Fyodor, with one foot in his place of birth (Batumi, Georgia, at the border of the Black Sea). Another star symbolizes Moscow, where he followed part of his education (Moscow Aviation Institute). The 98 refers to 1998, the year he started cosmonaut training. Fyodor Yurchikin is a patch collector himself.

Slightly updated version of Yurchikhin's personal patch (four sails instead of three for fourth spaceflight).

All times are CT (US)
