DescriptionApollo 13 Flown National Flag of Canada Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander James Lovell, Certified and Signed. This 6" x 4" cloth Canadian "Maple Leaf" (l'Unifolié in French) flag is certified and signed by Lovell beneath the leaf: "Flown on board Apollo 13 James Lovell". It has been lightly mounted to a heavy 10" x 12" certificate that states: "This flag was on board Apollo XIII during its flight and emergency return to Earth/ APOLLO XIII/ April 11-17, 1970/ Lowell - Swigert - Haise". This certificate bears the authentic signatures of all three crewmembers- "James Lovell", "Jack Swigert" (1931-1982), and "Fred Haise", all just above the mission insignia. This flag design only replaced the Union Jack as the Canadian national flag in 1965. Excellent condition.
This lot includes a signed Letter of Certification from Lovell stating: "[This item] was flown on board the Apollo 13 Command Module Odyssey during its perilous flight around the moon April 11-17, 1970."
