I am looking for info on the patches for the flight of Soyuz TM-31. This was the flight of the first crew to the ISS.

I can find very little info on the patch for the Soyuz spacecraft and its this patch that I hope you can help me out on.

I have the info and an ISS Expedition 1 crew patch, but I am looking for info on the patch that was for the Soyuz spacecraft and not the expedition patch.

I have only seen a photo on Wikipedia of this patch and I hope you on here can help me out. Thanks.

That patch on wiki is not the TM-31 patch... to the best of what I know there is no TM-31 crew patch, only the ISS Exp-1 patch...

Butch forget that Expedition patch: it never was a mission patch.

As far as I know, and like Jacques told us, the astronaut/cosmonauts of the Soyuz TM-31 and the Expedition 1 were the only crew that joined their patches in one.

At the time of the flight, Countdown Creations was selling shirts with the logo. Also, the plaque is hanging in mission control Houston. I doubt it was ever approved by the Soyuz commander though. Probably drawn up by someone at NASA JSC.
