    Ex. John Young

    Gemini 10 Flown Flag of the Madagascar (Republic of Madagascar) from the John W. Young Collection, with Letter of Certification. A 6.125" x 4" cloth flag that flew forty-three orbits around the Earth with crewmembers John Young and Michael Collins on Gemini 10 between July 18th and 21st, 1966. This design of two horizontal bands of red and green with a white vertical band on the hoist side was adopted in 1958. Excellent.

    Included with this lot is a Letter of Certification signed by Young's widow, Susy Young. It reads, in full: "I hereby certify that the small size country of Madagascar flag that accompanies this letter was flown aboard the Gemini 10 mission July 18-21, 1966. It has been a part of the John W. Young collection since returning from the mission. The flag has a holographic tamper-proof label attached, #1733305, to ensure authenticity, that will display a residual honeycomb design without number when removed."
