Here is the Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency's (JAXA) patch for Aki Hoshide's Expedition 65/66 mission on the International Space Station.

JAXA'S description (via machine translation):

The oval logo mark symbolizes that rugby is the basis of Astronaut Hoshide's idea of teamwork as Captain of the ISS.

The ISS that continues to advance is for the mission on the world (Earth) ISS represented by the five-colored lines, and at the same time for the mission to the moon and Mars in the future. It represents challenging with the astronauts.

In addition, "Konotori" is a symbol of Japan's world-class technological capabilities that have achieved 100% mission, and JAXA will continue to plan the ISS through HTV-X, the successor to "Kibo" and "Konotori". It shows the enthusiasm to contribute to.
