Artist rendition:  “The four and five stars represent 45 RANS, the designers of the patch and the military squadron that conducts the vehicle and public launch safety operations for Cape Canaveral missions. Almost hidden but still found within the rolling colors of Mars are the memories of the previous Mars missions, for which the Perseverance and Ingenuity will follow. Also depicted are the trusted and well-known NASA vector and worm, as well as the ancient symbol for Mars that sits between “Mars” and “2020.” In the center sits an Atlas V rocket in its 541 configuration. And finally, in the top right floats the white lotus. The white lotus is a symbol of something’s purity, regardless of origin. It signifies our potential for growth and success in spite of where we come from and the difficulties we face. It construes our perseverance in the face of adversity. It signifies a drive for enlightenment, for learning. It represents our missions to Mars as scientific endeavors for learning and the becoming the best parts of the human race.”
