    Apollo 15 Flown National Flag of Greece Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Al Worden, Signed and Certified, with Signed LOA. A 6" x 4.125" cloth Greek national flag that travelled 1.4 million miles to the moon and back aboard Apollo 15 in 1971. This flag has nine alternating stripes of blue and white with a white cross against a blue canton. When this flag flew into space, it was the design in use by the Navy and abroad; it was adopted as the sole national flag in 1978. Worden has signed along the lowest white stripe: "Flown to the Moon on Apollo 15 Al Worden CMP". This is the first space-flown flag of Greece that Heritage has offered. Excellent condition.
