Alec Hsu, who designed the patch, has been selling it in his store since last year, but orders have skyrocketed. It comes after Taiwan’s military news agency on Saturday published a photo of the patch on the arm of a pilot who was inspecting a fighter jet. “I wanted to raise the morale of our soldiers with this patch,” said Hsu, who owns the Wings Fan Goods Shop. Hsu said he has requested more patches to meet the growing demand. Among the clients were military officers and civilians.
