Ugly design, ugly colours. Nothing to do with the Expedition tasks. Why two crew members? Only one reality - chemical colours of clouds.

SkyForce has an embroidered example depicted on the site and I think it looks good. Something different.

Yes Paul, Joe now has them in stock with SKU patch design number 413995 A-B Emblem Made In China 08/19 40 date code.

The thing that puzzles me is why there are only three of the six crew names on the patches? Is there going to be a second version of this patch with the other three crew members on? Or have the other three crew members been removed from this Expedition 62 mission?

Many thanks for that update gents. I thought that could be the case that the SpaceX Dragon and Boeing Starliner manned test flight missions would be taking place around the time of the Expedition 62/63 missions.

From Expedition 62 flight engineer Andrew Morgan, via Twitter:
Did you know the inspiration for the Expedition 62 mission patch is a beautiful space art mosaic at the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center in Star City, Russia? The pair of space explorers flying in formation represent friendship.

More about the patch from its official description:

The Expedition 62 patch embodies two main themes: first, the importance of the global partnership on which the International Space Station was founded, and second, the paradigm shifting perspective provided by seeing our planet Earth from above with human eyes.

Based on a vintage mosaic found near the headquarters of the Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center, the two space explorers flying in formation represent friendship between space agencies and the people that work in them. The shining star in the hand is a symbol of unity under a common quest for discovery, as this partnership continues to burn bright into the future.

Generated by the flying astronauts, the shock wave signifies the powerful impact of human space exploration and the scientific research conducted on the space station, strengthened when we work as a team, side by side with all of our international partners.

The backdrop of the large sun behind our planet Earth reminds us that we are but a very small component of our solar system and our universe. The sun is also responsible for fueling life on Earth, sustaining the biosphere (symbolized by the leaf) surrounded by the precious, fragile atmosphere (represented by the clouds).

This imagery reminds us of our duty to protect our home planet, to preserve our environment and to carry principles of responsible environmental stewardship with us as we explore the universe. This birch leaf combines the principal elements, embodying nature, science and the global alliance, as these trees are indigenous to regions that crewmembers from all sides call home.

In February of 2019, graphic designer and art director Jessie Bowers (Cypha) designed the Expedition 62 patch.
It was an absolute honor to work with NASA astronaut Jessica Meir on designing the Expedition 62 (February to April 2020) logo. Being environmental scientists, the crew wanted the patch design to symbolize the heart of their mission — the preservation of a growing and healthy ecosystem on earth and beyond.
