Description

    Gemini 7 Flown Large-Size American Flag Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Pilot James Lovell, Signed and Certified. This 17.75" x 11" cloth U.S. flag flew with crewmembers Frank Borman and James Lovell on board the fourth of the two-man Gemini missions, December 4-18, 1965. The astronauts joked to Mission Control upon return about getting married after having spent so much time together in space. Lovell has signed this flag on a white stripe: "Flown aboard GEMINI VII. James Lovell". The majestic size of this flag makes it a particularly dramatic space-flown display item. Excellent condition with storage folds.

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