Northrop Grumman's patch description:
The NG-12 mission patch is framed in a dodecagon in recognition of the Cygnus spacecraft's 12th CRS mission. Cygnus is prominently featured in the design foreground for its role carrying commercially delivered cargo to the International Space Station.

The Antares launch vehicle is also shown, with RD-181 Stage 1 main engines at 100% throttle due to 230+ configuration vehicle upgrades permitting full usage of engine capability for the first time.

Six stars along the stylized Stars and Stripes banner represent the missions launched by the Antares 200 series, three stars for those launch by the Antares 100 series, and three stars for those launched by Atlas V. Fifteen twinkling stars bordering the patch reflect the 15 educational CubeSats to be deployed during NG-12 for the ELaNa mission.

This patch was designed by Northrop Grumman Innovation Systems employee Mike Tosto.
