    Description

    Apollo 15 Flown Flag of Bolivia Originally from the Personal Collection of Mission Commander Dave Scott, Signed and Certified, PSA/DNA Certified and Encapsulated, and with Signed Letter of Certification. A 5.875" x 4" national flag of Bolivia, as first adopted in 1851, which flew to the moon with Dave Scott, Jim Irwin, and Al Worden. It is signed on the flag in blue ink: "Flown around The Moon for/ 6 days (74 orbits), Apollo 15/ July 26-Aug 7, 1971/ Dave Scott/ Apollo 15 CDR". The flag has been slabbed by PSA/DNA as authentically signed. This is the first space-flown Bolivian flag Heritage has offered. Very fine.

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Scott reading, in part: "I hereby certify that the national flag of Bolivia included with this letter was flown around the Moon for 6 days (74 orbits) during Apollo 15, the first extended scientific exploration of the Moon, July 26-August 7, 1971. This silk flag measures 4" by 6" and was carried in my Personal Preference Kit (PPK) aboard the Command and Service Module, Endeavor. Adopted in 1851, the flag of Bolivia has three horizontal stripes of equal dimension-red, yellow, and green, top to bottom. The color red symbolizes the bloodshed of the Bolivian soldier, the yellow represents the country's mineral resources, and the green symbolizes the fertility of the countryside... This national flag of Bolivia has been in my personal collection since returning to Earth."
