Project Mercury Mission Patches

Rhonda Rodentilly, Document Historian

Good to see everyone again!  Every mission in Project Mercury had its own patch.  Look at the patches below.  Which one is your favorite?

I like the Glenn and Shepard patches because they show what the mission is about.  The Shepard patch has Florida and the capsule going up, then coming down.  The Glenn patch has three rings around the Earth!

Wouldn’t it be fun to make your own mission patches?  You can make them for anything.  If you are doing a school project you can design a patch for that project.  If you are trying to reach any goal, make a patch!
