Description

Dominican flag flown into lunar orbit during the Apollo 15 mission

Desirable flown Dominican Republic flag carried into lunar orbit aboard the Command Module Endeavor during the Apollo 15 mission, 6.25 x 4, signed and flight-certified in the lower right corner in black ballpoint, "Flown to the moon on Apollo 15, Al Worden, CMP." In fine condition. Accompanied by a photo of Worden holding the flag as well as a certificate of authenticity, which is signed at the conclusion by Worden, in part: "I hereby certify that this flag from Dominican Republic included with this letter went to the moon aboard Apollo 15 in the spacecraft 'Endeavour.' It remained in the command module during the lunar orbit phase of the flight." Flown with CMP Worden during the Endeavor's six days in lunar orbit, this exceptional flag orbited the moon a total of 74 times, and now exists as a unique extension to Latin America and one of the Apollo program's most scientifically rewarding missions.
