    Description

    Gemini 7 Flown Large-Size American Flag Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Pilot James Lovell, Certified and Signed. This 17.75" x 11" silk U.S. flag flew with crewmembers Frank Borman and James Lovell on board what was, up to that point, the longest manned spaceflight (thirteen days, eighteen hours), a record that stood for five years. The astronauts joked to Mission Control upon return about getting married after having spent so much time together in space. The large size of this flag makes it a particularly dramatic space-flown display item. Excellent condition with storage folds.

    Lovell has certified this flag on a white stripe: "Flown on board Gemini VII spacecraft. James Lovell".

    Included with this lot is a signed Letter of Certification from Lovell stating: "[This item] was flown on board Gemini 7 spacecraft. Gemini 7 launched in December of 1965 was the fourth earth-orbiting spacecraft of the Gemini series."
