Here is a patch for "Columbus Operations," which I don't know anything about it. Any information is welcome.

Astronauts, Cosmonauts & their flights

ESA Columbus Operations:
Inaugurated in 2004 under contract from ESA, the Columbus Control Centre (Col-CC), located at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) facility in Oberpfaffenhofen, Germany, works closely with the other ISS control centres including Houston and Moscow. Under the call sign 'Munich', Col-CC is responsible for all Columbus systems and for European science activities on board the ISS. Col-CC control teams began their operational activities as a precursor to Columbus operations during ESA's Astrolab mission to the ISS in 2006.

As far as we know, these logos have only been embroidered on polo shirts and not produced as ESA patches. Thanks!
