Share Post:

On July 7, 2022, China’s National Intellectual Property Administration (CNIPA) announced the registration of the China Manned Space logo in Chinese and English as numbers G202201 and G202202 in “Announcement of the State Intellectual Property Office on the Registration and Filing of the Official Mark of the “China Manned Space” mark of the China Manned Space Engineering Office (No. 492) (国家知识产权局关于中国载人航天工程办公室“中国载人航天工程标识”官方标志登记备案的公告(第492号)). The logos comprise a stylized space station graphic having a cabin and solar panels with Chinese text Chinese Manned Space or the acronym CMS in the English version. It somewhat resembles the Chinese character 中, (which stands for China) “to show the power of the Chinese nation to take off.”

Note that unlike the U.S. Space Force, China’s logo doesn’t resemble the United Federation of Planets’ Starfleet Command logo.

The full text of the announcement is available here (Chinese only).
