    Description

    Apollo 14 Flown National Flag of Sweden Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell, Certified and Signed. Offered here is a 5.75" x 4" silk Swedish flag that was carried aboard Apollo 14 on its mission to the moon, January 31-February 9, 1971. 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. This flag features a blue and yellow Scandinavian cross, a design with a history dating back to the 16th century. Excellent condition.

    Dr. Mitchell has certified this flag: "Flown to the Moon aboard Kittyhawk/ on Apollo 14 Edgar Mitchell LMP".

    Included in this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Dr. Mitchell on his personal letterhead stating (in part): "This letter certifies that the accompanying 4" x 6" flag of Sweden bearing the written inscription... was carried in my personal preference kit (PPK) on Apollo 14 from January 31, 1971 to February 9, 1971 during the Apollo 14 mission... Ours was the first Apollo mission devoted primarily to scientific exploration of the moon, rather than tests of the operational flight procedures necessary for successful missions..."
