The pin says:”Star City” with an image of Yuri Gagarin, first human in space.
Star City is a common name of an area in Moscow Oblast, which has since the 1960s been home to the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center.
Cosmonauts of the Russian Federal Space Agency, and the Soviet space program before it, have lived and trained in Star City since the 1960s. In the Soviet era the location was a highly secret and guarded military installation, access to which was severely restricted. Many Russian cosmonauts, past and present, and Training Centre’s personnel, live in Star City with their families.
