Remarkable flown American flag carried on all three Skylab missions, 5.5 x 3.75, signed and flight-certified in ink by a member of each crew: "Carried aboard Skylab, Paul Weitz PLT, SL-2," "Carried aboard Skylab, Alan Bean CDR Skylab II (SL-3)," and "Carried aboard Skylab 4, Jerry Carr, CDR SL-4." The flag is affixed to a presentation certificate, reading: "Carried aboard the Skylab Space Station, 1973-1974, Presented to John W. Holland, For your 'extra effort' in making the Skylab missions successful." The certificate has subsequently been signed by all Skylab crewmen in the lower left: Charles Conrad, Joe Kerwin, Paul Weitz, Alan Bean, Owen K. Garriott, Jack Lousma, Jerry Carr, Ed Gibson, and Bill Pogue. Matted and framed to an overall size of 23.25 x 19.25. In fine condition, with uniform light toning to flag. Holland worked in NASA's photographic processing labs in Houston. Carried on all three Skylab missions, this small American flag completed an astounding 2,476 orbits of Earth—a truly remarkable piece.
