Designing process

Byline design

The emblem of the crew of Soyuz MS-02 is made in a perfect round shape, symbolizing the perfection of everything created in the universe. 
In the center of the emblem there is an image of the sacred mount Tabor, located in the Holy Land. On top of the mountain is a source of light, symbolizing the sanctification that lights all Earthly things. From this source emerge three beams, representing the desire of the members of the crew to the space, and the intention to successfully complete all upcoming tasks.
Mount Tabor is framed by the letter "F", depicted in the form of the orbit at the top of which is the International Space Station, and at the base the Soyuz spacecraft. Inside the letter "F" depicts the stars symbolize the surrounding space and three stars symbolize the crew, whose names are inscribed in stylized font in the outline of the emblem, along with the state flags of Russia and the United States, the name of the ship Soyuz MS-02 and the logo of Roscosmos. Also inside the letter "F" is “Favor”- the crew call sign, the main symbol of the logo. Patch designed by Serguei Rijikov together with Andrei Babkin.
