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.

What pin did Kud-Sverchkov and Dubrov have in their jackets today at the press conference? Here is a poor photo.

This was a pin for 55 years of the cosmonaut corps.

Roscosmos release
Soyuz MS-17 crew presented its patch

The Soyuz MS-17 crew, which is to launch to the International Space Station in October 2020, has presented its patch. The patch is round-shaped symbolizing the Earth and its perfection, and inscribed into the Cyrillic letter Ф standing for the crew callsign "Favor" ("Фавор").

In the lower part of the patch, the inscription "Байконур" ("Baikonur") is located symbolizing the connection of the Soyuz MS-17 with this city and the cosmodrome. In 2020, Baikonur celebrated its 65th anniversary. Moreover, Roscosmos cosmonaut Sergey Kud-Sverchkov was born there.

The upper part of the patch contains the image of the International Space Station with its solar panels resembling the Roman numbers XX standing for the 20th anniversary of its crewed flight operation.

"The inside part of the patch pictures Earth's surface symbolizing careful attitude to our planet and gratitude towards our native land, feeding, inspiring, supporting and giving strength," Roscosmos cosmonaut Sergey Ryzhikov noted.

In the center, over the Soyuz-2.1a carrier rocket, is a source of light illuminating the planet and the international crew members with their names written on the edges of the patch.

The Soyuz MS-17 crewed spacecraft with the 64th long-term expedition to the International Space Station is scheduled to launch on October 14, 2020. The total mission duration is expected to reach 177 days. This will be the second spaceflight for Sergey Ryzhikov and Kathleen Rubins, while Sergey Kud-Sverchkov will launch into space for the first time.

Oleg Novitskiy sent me the photo of the MS-17 patch the crew has on their vests. Fully embroidered. The landscape is simplified.

One more congratulation for Flying Dutchmen! Your 45th patch in a raw was on Sokol space suits and is aboard the ISS now!

Great job, friends! It's a passion! We are all thankful to you for this possibility to get original patches for our collections!
