Similar to that on the NASA agency shield and insignia, there is a gold symbol of flight outlined in blue across the face of the shield. The border surrounding the shield is a circle of 16 stars completed by the the crew’s surnames at the bottom. The patch was designed from ideas submitted by the Apollo 16 3-man crew: John W.
