The Soyuz MS-15 crew patch uses a hexagonal design with a view of space in the background, dominated by an image of our moon. In this way, the crew commemorates the 50th anniversary of man's first landing on our celestial neighbour. The blue and yellow border colours are borrowed from the Apollo 11 patch. Soyuz is depicted in blue hues, representing a reflection of Earth's atmosphere on the spacecraft's exterior.

An arctic tern is at the top of the design, symbolising the prolonged mission on board ISS. This bird is known for the long migrations it undertakes annually. The space station is depicted as a silhouette, reflecting the golden rays of the Sun.

The spacecraft's identification is shown against the lower part of the moon, with the Roscosmos logo in its centre.

Six sections make up the design's border, alternately displaying the crew members' names and their national flags.
