SpaceX Crew-1 member Soichi Noguchi just tweeted a photo with several of his mission patches in the background. The rightmost one appears to be the Crew-1 patch.

To my knowledge this is our first look at the mission insignia.

I think it is his personal patch for this mission.

Isn't his personal patch for this flight the heptagonal one to the left of it?

I'm not sure if we're talking about the same one, but I'm talking about the blue dragon shaped one, I could easily be wrong though.

The patch second from the right was previously released by JAXA as Noguchi's personal patch for his expedition stay.

It is possible the Crew-1 patch is his personal patch for the Dragon flight alone, but given the inclusion of the icons representing the history of U.S. spaceflight, I think it is more likely to be the crew patch (or a proposed design for it). Well spotted.

I had mistaken the program icon for Japanese characters... I love the design!

Perhaps the Dragon spacecraft on the patch was based on how the Dragon spacecraft looked in the painting seen in this photo.

Soichi Noguchi updated his Twitter profile with this photo showing him wearing the patch (no larger version available):
