    Description

    Apollo 15 Flown Flag of the Republic of Upper Volta Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Al Worden, Signed and Certified, with Signed LOA. A 5.875" x 4.125" cloth flag carried to the moon on Apollo 15, July 26-August 7, 1971. This flag design was adopted in 1959, a horizontal tri-color of black, white, and red. In 1984 Upper Volta became Burkina Faso and the flag design was changed. Worden has signed on the lower red stripe: "Flown to the Moon on Apollo 15 Al Worden CMP". Excellent condition.

It remained in the command module during the lunar orbit phase of the flight."
