UAE astronaut Sultan Al Neyadi released the SpaceX Crew-6 patch (via Twitter).
Our Crew-6 mission patch is here, happy and excited to share it with you.
The crew includes Al Neyadi, NASA astronauts Stephen Bowen and Warren Hoburg and Roscosmos cosmonaut Andrey Fedyaev. Al Neyadi also posted the patch decription:
Sailing across the Crew-6 patch, the ship represents both our destination, the International Space Station, and the vessels that countless explorers have steered into the unknown. The ISS anchors us, on the dawn of missions to the Moon and Mars.

The ship's sail, a symbol of the 2012 Cosmonaut class, has relative radii matching those of Earth, the Moon and Mars.

The Draco constellation represents the Commercial Crew Program, and shares a name with the thrusters that maneuver our Dragon spacecraft. The ship's Dragon figurehead looks to the future, as we also look back at Earth, grateful for the tireless hours of all who support our mission.

According to Sultan Al Neyadi at today's Crew-6 pre-flight press conference, it was a joint effort by the entire crew, with all four first agreeing that they all liked the motif of a sailing ship.
