First look at the Soyuz MS-17 mission patch (via SpaceFacts). The crew includes Sergey Ryzhikov and Sergey Kud-Sverchkov of Roscosmos and Kate Rubins of NASA.

Is it me, or is there a religious feel to this patch?

Compare with Soyuz MS-02 crew patch as the first flight of Sergey Ryzhikov.

If I am correct in my assumption, the crossed solar arrays (i.e. "XX") in the depiction of the space station at the top of the patch is a subtle, but very nice nod to the 20 years of continuous human occupancy aboard the ISS.

I think you're right Robert.

I like it! Look forward to learning the story behind it.

The patch combines poligraphy and embroidery. Rijikov told me he flew over his home land in Russia and did this photo.

The shape of the patch — Greek letter "Ф" is from the sign call of the crew ФАВОР.

I think flying Dutchmen did a great job!!!

Does anyone have any more information about the design of the symbol between the clouds (“source of light” as I think it was described on the Soyuz MS-02 patch)? To me it looks like a sun with some kind of stylized bird or spacecraft inside it.

TsPK confirmed me the crew got their patches, stickers and pins! Tomorrow they will have the MS-17 patches on their training suits during exams.

Did double crew have their patches on their training suits today? There is a poor photo of Oleg Novitsky.

From a friend in Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center (TsPK).

He confirmed me the backup crew has their patch with Cosmodrom Baikonur 2020.
