    Description

    Apollo 15 Flown National Flag of Turkey Directly from the Personal Collection of Mission Command Module Pilot Al Worden, Signed and Certified, with Signed LOA. A 6" x 4" cloth Turkish flag that flew to the moon aboard the Apollo 15 Command Module Endeavour, July 26-August 7, 1971. This design, adopted in 1936, features a red field with a white crescent moon and five-pointed star slightly left of center and is very similar to the previous design for the flag of the Ottoman Empire. Worden has signed along the lower edge: "Flown to the Moon on Apollo 15/ Al Worden CMP". This is the first space-flown Turkish flag Heritage has had the privilege to offer. Excellent condition with just some very light staining, mentioned for accuracy.

    Included with this lot is a letter of authenticity signed "Al Worden" on his letterhead, stating (in part): "I hereby certify that this flag from Turkey included with this letter went to the moon aboard Apollo 15 in the spacecraft 'ENDEAVOUR'. It remained in the command module during the lunar orbit phase of the flight."
