European Space Agency (ESA) shoulder patch

For the first time in ESA's history, we are proud to announce that the original ESA astronaut shoulder patch is now available to order.

This version, with the ESA logo and 19 Member State flags, is exactly as worn by current ESA astronauts and first worn by Andre Kuipers during training for his ESA PromISSe mission in 2011. The original provider, the German company Quadrotem, has been licensed to produce these for sale to the public and by ESA-authorised vendors.

Cheers, Erik, yes we're working to hopefully produce patches of earlier ESA missions with our original suppliers.

Carl, I've been waiting a long time for something like this. This is most welcome news and I wish you success in continuing this initiative. Between your role as Editor of ESA Bulletin and what you have undertaken here, we are fortunate in having you serving our needs. Thank you very much.

I received the ESA patch yesterday. The patch is 3.15" wide and 5.11" long (8 x 13 cm).

I note that Poland has now accessioned ESA as of Nov 19, so they'll have to make another one.

Indeed we did. Better order your 19-flag version now, before we switch to the 20-flag version (already designed).

Quadrotem now have ESA's 20 Member State patches available, following Poland joining Europe's space agency last November.

Note the 19-flag version will be available while stocks last, for collectors, but officially we have switched to the 20-flag version.

The new ESA 22-flags patches (with Estonia and Hungary) are now available from official ESA supplier Quadrotem.

The price of 8.00 Euro plus delivery incl. VAT and payment method are the same, see website. PayPal to whenning@quadrotem.de.

Did anybody count how many flags were on the ESA patch on Alex Vogel's EVA suit in "The Martian?"
