Mark Vande Hei revealed the Soyuz MS-06 patch on Twitter:

Russia's Soyuz MS-06 will launch to the International Space Station in September 2017. Roscosmos cosmonaut Alexander Misurkin and NASA astronauts Mark Vande Hei and Joseph Acaba will join the Expedition 53/54 crew.

As far as I understand, this design was finalised by spacepatches.nl on the basis of the idea Misurkin has chosen as a winner. He got plenty of ideas via Facebook I think.

Very modern design! On the original picture, normally we will not see links between the dots. On the patch no choice — embroidery...

Roscosmos didn't put the logo on their site. No description either.

Russian State Commission is planned June 16 which will approve formally MS-06 crew. Roscosmos will put the logo and its description on their site just after.

The Commission will also approve the crews for 2018. Just some days left...

Description via spacepatches.nl:
The composition of the emblem of the crew of the spacecraft Soyuz MS-06 is designed around a stylized image of an eagle, spreading its wings. The powerful bird in the image also recalls the city of Oyol, where spacecraft commander Alexander Misurkin grew up. The crew's callsign is "Altair": the brightest star in the constellation of the Eagle.

The design of the graphic symbol of the crew is made in a simple three-color palette; the continents of our planet are depicted in a minimalist manner — dots in the style of computer graphics. In the center of the emblem a Soyuz spaceraft is depicted in flight.

In the lower part of the emblem the logos of Roscosmos and NASA are shown. The top part of the border shows the name of the Soyuz MS-06 spacecraft while the bottom part is taken up by the crew members' names.

The crew patch was developed by Alexei Tarapata, the winner of a contest announced by Alexander Misurkin in social media. The final design was made by Dutch artist Luc van den Abeelen.
