"Forward"Apollo 13 Flown Wisconsin State Flag Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander James Lovell, with Signed LOA. This 6" x 3.75" cloth flag with the state motto "Forward" (very appropriate) flew with Lovell, Swigert, and Haise aboard the Apollo 13 mission. James Lovell grew up in Wisconsin, graduating from high school in Milwaukee and attending the University of Wisconsin-Madison. Note: the current Wisconsin flag now contains the terms "Wisconsin" and "1848," modifications made in 1981. Excellent.
Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Lovell on his company letterhead stating, in full: "I hereby certify that Wisconsin State Flag was on board the Apollo 13 spacecraft. Apollo 13 perilous flight took off on April 11 and returned safely on April 17, 1970. This flag was from my personal collection of space artifacts and has been in my possession since the mission."
