Printed fabric American flag, 18 x 12, carried on board the Gemini 4 mission, and also carried by White during America’s first space walk on June 3, 1965. Flag is housed in a 23.75 x 20.5 glass frame with an engraved descriptive plaque, which notes this flag is “3 of 7.” Accompanied by a certificate of authenticity from Edward H. White II, which reads, in full: “This document shall certify that this large silk American flag (12″ x 10″) [sic] was carried into the void of space by Edward H. White II, on the Gemini 4 mission, June 3-7, 1965. This flag is one of seven large flags carried into space on America’s first extravehicular activity (EVA), and is the last one that will be offered for sale.” In fine condition.
