Lot 8: Apollo 15 FLOWN Belgian Flag

This Belgian flag, from the personal collection of Apollo 15 Command Module Pilot Al Worden, was flown to the Moon aboard Apollo 15 Command Module Endeavor, which launched from the Kennedy Space Center on July 26, 1971. Worden has inscribed this museum-quality artifact with the words: "Flown to the moon on Apollo 15 - Al Worden CMP."

NASA provided each Apollo crew with sets of flags representing countries and organizations from around the world. In addition to those provided to the crewmembers for their personal use, such flags were intended for special presentations following the flight. One can find news photos from the period depicting the Apollo crews presenting these to national and world dignitaries. This is one of the flags provided to Worden.

While Apollo 15 astronaut crewmembers David Scott and the late James Irwin explored the Hadley-Apennine region of the Moon, Worden piloted the CM above and conducted experiments in orbit.

The 6" x 4" flag has been matted and framed using archival methods; the final presentation measures 14.5 x 14.5". Also included is a certificate of authenticity written and signed by Worden, detailing the flag's lunar journey.
