STS-86 was the seventh Shuttle-Mir docking mission. The international crew included astronauts from the United States, Russia, and France. The flags of these countries are incorporated in the rays of the astronaut logo. The seven stars represent this seventh mission. The rays of light streaking across the sky depict the orbital tracks of the two spacecraft as they prepare to dock. During the flight an American astronaut and a Russian cosmonaut performed a spacewalk. The mercator projection of Earth illustrates the global cooperative nature of the flight.
