European Space Agency (ESA) release
ESA's ATV-5 "Georges Lemaître" insignia

The ATV-5 logo is now available, keeping with the trend set from ATV-2 onwards this logo features the name of a prominent European scientist, Belgian astronomer George Lemaître, but comes in a cool blue.

I'm disappointed. The blue is too close the Kepler ATV-2 patch. I like the idea of the consistent design but they had so much choice.

You should try Jacques van Oene from Spacepatches.nl in a few weeks.

He sold the official ATV 2, 3 and 4 patches and I wouldn't be surprised if he sells the ATV-5 patch as well.

We normally set the next mission's patch into production after the undocking and reentry of the current mission, so after ATV-4's end of mission.

ESA ATV patches are available direct from our licensed manufacturer or from reputable suppliers such as Spacepatches.nl.

The point of the colours is that they are selected from the ESA corporate colour palette. After blue, green and red were used for ATV-2, 3 and 4, we tried an orange/yellow combination but that did not look so good. Other combinations were tried, but this was the one chosen by the ATV team.

Wow. This is what I love about collectSPACE. I made an off-the-cuff comment about the colours of a patch. Then someone involved in the design answers my post!

Thanks for the feedback Carl. Great to hear the reasons behind the decisions.

I like it, it's a real departure from the 'too many elements in one patch on a black background' designs that have come out of NASA programs in the last few years...

The patch is now available for sale.

The ATV-2, 3 and 4 patches are also still available.
