NASA's Mars 2020 rover mission patch

The Mars 2020 rover is being designed to seek signs of past life on Mars, collect and store a set of soil and rock samples that could be returned to Earth in the future, and test new technology to benefit future robotic and human exploration of Mars.

The Mars 2020 mission patch is available from the Jet Propulsion Laboratory store.

A heads up in case you're interested, United Launch Alliance (ULA) is selling their Mars 2020 launch patches. I picked up a couple myself.
Exclusive ULA Atlas V Perseverance mission patch was created to commemorate our significant history launching to Mars. Each star represents a Mars mission launched by ULA and our heritage rockets. A limited supply of the patch is available for purchase.

Many mission patches, one Mars mission:

The Mars 2020 patch at the top of this thread is now available from the AB Emblem website. SKU patch design number 424928. The date code is not known at this time.

This Mars 2020 patch was listed on the AB Emblem website at the exact same time as the launch from KSC.

It appears the AB Emblem version differs in some color choices, tweaks the design and uses a larger font, resulting in the text being compressed more than the original JPL version.

Nice catch, Robert. It's unfortunate that they used the larger font because the words are horribly crowded. "PREPAREFORHUMANS" and "COLLECTROCK"?

I would expect this from the Malaysian knock-off people (or some of the more recent US-based guys making every kind of replica lately).

AB Emblem have just changed the photo of this Mars 2020 patch on their website for another (as below). They have not improved the text, it still does not look any better.

Thanks for clearing that up. This kind of thing is one reason why I sometimes have a problem with commemorative patches, like those of Randy Hunt. No matter how pretty, they just put so much mud in the water.

Does anyone know when and where the official version was made available? I have the rectangular JPL patch, but see that the revised official version is of a different shape.

The "official" patch at the upper center was available to mission team members.

The patches at the upper left and bottom center were created by and for the Air Force launch support teams. The patch at the bottom right is a ULA souvenir (as described upthread).

The patches at the upper right and lower left preceded the rover being named. The earlier was available from the JPL Store. The latter was available to mission team members.
