Drew Feustel published the Expedition 56 patch on Twitter.
ISS Expedition 56 mission patch

The International Space Station's (ISS) Expedition 56 begins with the scheduled undocking of Soyuz MS-07. New crew members will arrive shortly thereafter on Soyuz MS-09.

ISS Expedition 56 will be led by commander Drew Feustel of NASA. His crewmates, all flight engineers, include: Roscosmos cosmonauts Oleg Artemyev and Sergei Prokopyev; Ricky Arnold and Jeanette Epps of NASA and European Space Agency astronaut Alexander Gerst.

The Expedition 56 patch portrays a dove carrying an olive branch in its beak. The patch includes of the Soyuz launch vehicle for the crew and the ISS orbital laboratory. The Expedition 56 astronauts' names are displayed on the dove's wings and along the limb of the Earth at the base of the patch.

The dove's tail is firmly planted on the Earth limb in order to represent the strong link between our planet and the humans who are sent into the cosmos to carry us beyond the bounds of our only home. The patch theme is best expressed with the Sanskrit word "Shanti," meaning peace, tranquility in one of the oldest languages in history. The patch illustrates our hope for peace and love in the world, and the innate human desire to spread our wings and explore into the future, building on the wisdom of the past, for the betterment of humankind.

This revised AB Emblem Expedition 56 patch has the patch design number 289528 but I don't know yet the date code(s) used as yet.

Update; No embedded labels have been found on the first batches of these Expedition 56 patches to leave Weaverville, NC this week ending 9th March.

Still not one of these revised Expedition 56 patches has been found or reported to me with an embedded label on it. I have asked the question why to AB Emblem, but have not yet received an answer. (As of 27th March).

Tomorrow will be the first time the Expedition 56 patch goes outside for a spacewalk! An especially significant event for me since my son designed the patch.

The latest production run made in China for the Expedition 56 patches has a new "patch design" number.
  • 293879 A-B Emblem + Made In China 07/1840
The previous one was 289528. This new patch design number could just be an error, or again a deliberate new number? But looking at the patches there are no visible differences to the patch design its self.

During Russian EVA-45 on Wednesday (Aug. 15), Oleg Artemyev had the first version of Expedition 56 patch, did Sergey Prokopyev have the same?

It looks to me like Prokopyev wore the new version of the patch.

Both Expedition 56 patches worn by Artemyev and Prokopyev can be seen in the same shot in this photo taken by Alexander Gerst.
