Soyuz MS-08 mission patch

Russia's Soyuz MS-08 will launch to the International Space Station in March 2018. Cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev of Roscosmos and NASA astronauts Drew Feustel and Ricky Arnold will join Expedition 55/56.
Feustel, posting on Twitter, shared an early look at the Soyuz MS-08 crew portrait and a mission patch on their arm:

My understanding is this is not the official Soyuz MS-08 crew patch (to be revealed later) but one produced by AB Emblem based on a design by Arnold's daughter(s).

I was told the MS-08 real patch was in a shape of a Soyuz capsule. Artemyev had it on his training suit before holidays. But no photos are available.

In a couple of weeks the crew will pass through a final medical control. Artemiev will officially show their logo just after.

The medical control now is for the February 23.

Got the earlier and the final versions of the MS-08 patch designed by Arnold's daughter.

It's hard to see, but on the first version patch, the Soyuz capsule is over Hawai'i, and in the window, there's a hand giving the "hang loose" sign (quite common in the 50th state).

Last Tuesday medical final control confirmed the MS-08 crew members readiness for the lift off March 21. Artemiev will update their logo description and the patch will be officially revealed.

The Soyuz MS-08 crew patch design is shaped like the spacecraft's descent module as it looks during the landing phase of the ship's mission. Within, the crew is depicted in silhouettes as they approach their launch vehicle.

A moon is shown behind the launch complex, representing the dream of manned missions into deeper space. Six stars in the background are for the six-member ISS crew.

The 'Science' statue located in Baikonur and the tulip from the old coat of arms of Leninsk town symbolize the significance of the Russian launch base. The International Space Station is shown in bright yellow as the spacecraft's orbital destination.

The crew names are shown in a semicircle at the top of the design, while the colors of the Russian and US flags are shown at the bottom, flanking the Roscosmos logo, underneath the spacecraft's name and crew expedition numbers.

Designed by Luc van den Abeelen.

To tell you the truth, I wish Arnold's daughter's version was the official patch. This is not a shot at Luc, he is a talented artist and his design is quite detailed. I just like her design better.

The official patch designed by Luc is one of the best patches ever.

For your understanding.Luc has just done a graphic design of what Artemiev wanted to see on his logo.

It depends much on the personality of the crew board commander and their daughters from time to time (TMA-10M Luc did on the basis of the drawings by Kotov's daughter)!

NASA photos from the rollout of the Soyuz rocket to the launch pad show multiple spectators wearing bright orange vests with a different MS-08 crew-related insignia:

An apparent nod to the crew's call sign: Hawaii.

The logo we see on the backs of some roll-out visitors has not any connection to the crew and Roscosmos. It was a group of corporate tourists from the INGOSSTRAKH — Russian insurance company — who decided to have their own logo for this visit.

This information comes from Roscosmos. No patch was produced.

The crew patch made it on to the launch pad during launch and into a Roscoscosmos video:
