The Official Soyuz TMA-06M crewpatch. The Soyuz TMA-06M patch features the spacecraft on final approach to docking with the International Space Station. The solar panels of the orbital facility are shaped to depict the Roman numerals XXXIII, for the 33rd expedition that this crew begins. The colours of the comet under the name of Tarelkin, white and red, come from the seal of the City of Dmitrov, where he was born. The red and green one under Novitsky's name represent the flag of Belarus, where the commander was born. Astronaut Ford's name is underlined by a blue comet and a yellow star, featured in the flag of his home state of Indiana. The Soyuz TMA-06M patch was designed by cosmonaut Evgeni Tarelkin.
