    Description

    Apollo 9 Flown National Flag of Mexico Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Rusty Schweickart, Signed and Certified. An oversized 6.875" x 5" cloth Mexican flag that orbited the earth for ten days aboard Apollo 9, March 3-13, 1969, with crewmembers Jim McDivitt, Dave Scott, and Rusty Schweickart. This is the version of the national flag that Mexico adopted in 1968, a vertical tri-color of green, white, and red with the Mexico coat of arms in the center. Schweickart has signed in the white stripe: "Flown on/ Apollo 9/ Rusty/ Schweickart". This is the first space-flown Mexican flag we have offered since 2011. Various light creases, very fine.
