From: http://www.spacepatches.info/:

Quote
The Soyuz MS-08 crew patch design is shaped like the spacecraft's descent module as it looks during the landing phase of the ship's mission. Within, the crew is depicted in silhouettes as they approach their launch vehicle. A moon is shown behind the launch complex, representing the dream of manned missions into deeper space. Six stars in the background are for the six-member ISS crew. The 'Science' statue located in Baikonur and the tulip from the old coat of arms of Leninsk town symbolize the significance of the Russian launch base. The international space station is shown in bright yellow as the spacecraft's orbital destination. The crew names are shown in a semicircle at the top of the design, while the colours of the Russian and US flags are shown at the bottom, flanking the Roscosmos logo, underneath the spacecraft's name and crew expedition numbers. Designed by Luc van den Abeelen.
