    Description

    Apollo 14 Flown National Flag of Germany Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell, Signed and Certified. A 5.75" x 4" cloth German flag that flew to the moon on the third manned mission to land on the moon, January 31-February 9, 1971, along with crewmembers Shepard, Mitchell, and Roosa. This flag stayed in the orbiting Command Module Kitty Hawk with Stuart Roosa while Alan Shepard and Edgar Mitchell took the Lunar Module Antares to the lunar surface. Dr. Mitchell has signed this flag across the bottom yellow stripe: "Flown to the moon on Apollo 14/ Edgar Mitchell ". This flag's design features the national colors of Germany in equal horizontal bands. Excellent condition save for a storage crease along the left side.

    Included with this lot is a letter of authenticity signed "Edgar Mitchell" on his personal letterhead stating: "This letter is to certify that the accompanying 'Country of Germany' Flag (4" x 6"), was carried into lunar orbit aboard the Command Module Kittyhawk on the Apollo 14 mission to the Fra Mauro Highlands January 31 to February 9, 1971. It was in lunar orbit for 67 hours. This flag has been in my personal collection of Apollo memorabilia since that time. Enjoy it in remembrance of that historic period."
