    Apollo 14 Flown Texas State Flag Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Lunar Module Pilot Edgar Mitchell, Certified and Signed. Offered here is a 5.875" x 4.25" silk Texas 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.
