Description


Flight-flown Masonic flag, carried on board Faith 7 by astronaut and Freemason Gordon Cooper during his spaceflight on May 15–16, 1963. Blue flag measures 15 x 12 with the embroidered square, compass, and ‘G’ in the center, and was carried in Cooper’s spacesuit pocket during the final mercury mission. Accompanied by an informational sheet incorporating a photocopy of Cooper’s original handwritten certification issuing a single certification for all the flags he carried on that mission, which reads, “These flags were flown in this sealed packet in my flight suit pocket of MA–9.” Flag was originally offered by Cooper in the 1995 Superior Space Auction. Flag retains previous storage folds from storage in Cooper’s suit. This flag stands as one of only a handful of documented Masonic artifacts ever flown into space. RRAuction COA.
