Today we introduced a new line of merchandise dedicated to the NS-19 mission on the Blue Origin Shop.

Mission patches have long been a part of human spaceflight stemming from NASA astronauts wearing them on every mission since 1965. They represent the mission and are worn by astronauts and those affiliated with the flight.
