GARUDA Mission Patch Design Competition



A space mission requires an abundance of manpower to work together to create a successful mission. A mission patch is the graphic representation of a well-defined understanding of their mission goals and objectives and pride in their achievement. Every space mission has its mission patch, designed by the crew members. The mission patches feature the space mission and important elements of the mission, such as particular experiments that the mission crew will undertake, or equipment that they are installing. The crew proudly wears the mission patch on T-shirts, hats, jackets, flight suits, or spacesuits.
