Though the artwork for the Soyuz MS-09 mission patch has yet to be released, Soyuz commander Sergey Prokopyev briefly described its design during the crew's press conference at Johnson Space Center in Houston on Wednesday (Feb. 14):
Just imagine this picture, on this symbol we have of course Earth, space and three swans — white swans they fly to the space. I think it is a good symbol for three members of crew and it is main idea this is patch.

White swans? Not bad like idea. Before we had only stars for the crew. I was told there is a mountain also on the logo — Altai is their signcall (mountains in Russia).

Don't forget that the Soyuz TMA-16 backup patch had six flying birds for each prime and backup crew member!

There, dear Erik, the six birds are not flying together! But you are right, FLYING Dutchman!

The circular shape of the Soyuz MS-09 crew patch symbolizes the shape of the globe, inside of which the Belukha mountain is visible: the highest peak of the Altai, representing the crew's call sign.

A trio of white swans flying over the Earth towards the International Space Station symbolize the three crew members. The six stars shown against the black background of space are for the members making up the successive ISS expedition crews.

The golden silhouette of the orbital outpost is shown at the top of the emblem. Below are the numbers of the main expeditions of the same hue. The Roscosmos logo is placed in the middle of the inscription "Soyuz MS-09."

The crew members' names are put along the emblem's inner border with the crew commander's name underneath the flying spaceship Soyuz. The outer border is made up of the astronauts' national flags.

Designed by Luc van den Abeelen.

Ditto. That's one of the nicest designs in many years.
