Designing process

Left: The Apollo-17 patch artwork. Center: Luc's initial proposal. Right: Luc's last version of the artwork with added Expedition-45 background. From this point onwards, Blake Dumesnil was asked by the crew to finalize the patch.

A first version of the Soyuz TMA-17M artwork was drawn by Luc van den Abeelen in November 2013. It was a tribute to both the Apollo-17 mission and Soviet rocket designer Sergei Pavlovich Korolev.
