Good to see that all three versions of the Expedition 37 patch were up in the Service Module during the post-docking events this morning. The version NASA had wanted, the version by Jorge and Tim that the Russians had liked to see and finally the compromise.

How about seeing if we can get AB Emblem to produce an Expedition 37 patch with nine names on it, since there are now for the next few days nine members of the Expedition 37 crew?

I am thinking of a project like when a special run was arranged with AB Emblem by Tim Gagnon to make patches with crew members names for several expedition missions that did not originally have names on the patches.

A special Expedition "37.5" patch was made for the crew (though not by AB Emblem) of a different design than the Expedition 37 patch. I don't know if it will be available to collectors but I'll see if the art can be shared.

Update: See Expedition 37.5 insignia ("official unofficial" patch)

Nice! (But why two Italian flags?)

So, Expedition 37 is now history Jorge.

Well Mastracchio is an Italian-American?

Nice tribute Jorge!

Yep! I had a mistake with Mastracchio flag. I was in a hurry to get it finished before the landing... I should have drawn another USA flag. Forgiveness...

Here's that version of the patch put to thread. I purchased it from Spaceboosters UK.

It appears to have a few more stars.

I wish I had seen this sooner. I am the designer. You can see more of my work on Facebook.

I was the designer for the original "blue shield" patch. My aunt, Karen Nyberg, was the mission specialist on the expedition. As a graphic designer she asked me if I would come up with some designs. The original design was approved but there were some last minute changes to the crew lineup and the new commander wanted to have a new design. That is why there was a change in the design and the originals all came out in production.

I have a few the the embroidered patches, decals and lapel pins. Perhaps I should put them up and ebay for collectors. I also have some tshirts and posters that I designed for STS-127 as my uncle was the pilot for that mission and I had the opportunity to design some materials for that as well.

How many patches of the original design were produced, do you know?

Would be interested in a patch and decal.

Can I ask what is the date code on the embedded label on the back of the patches you have?

Unfortunately I am in the process of moving so all of my things are in boxes and in storage. As soon as I get access to them I will let you know!

Here is a photo of the crew with all three patches along side the patch and pin I received once they went into production.

A little bit about the design; After doing a some research on mission patches that had been designed in the past we decided to go with the shield shape because it was something unique yet still remained simple and cohesive to the design. The original design had the "swooshes" behind the ISS in an outline with the world showing through but the final embroidery was changed to make them a solid color. That was later added by the production team.

Seeing all three patches together I have to say they all turned out very nice and I have to applaud the other designers for their work. I greatly appreciate the opportunity that was given to me and to see my design in its final form. I can only hope to have the chance to collaborate or design another one in the future!

This date code was the one used on the first production run, which was issued to the astronauts, flight crews, and flight technicians.

Many thanks for this information.

The two I'm looking for are 02/15 and 05/23/12 (both of these are error date codes and should of been 02/13 and 05/13/20).
