Presented is a vintage felt pennant commemorating the NASA Cape Kennedy Space Center and Saturn V rocket. The pennant dates to around 1966-1973. “Kennedy Space Center” is printed in block white lettering across the width of the pennant. In cursive beneath is written “Florida.” At left is an image of the Saturn V rocket used between the years 1967 and 1973, with the title “NASA Saturn V” printed vertically in white lettering.
The John F. Kennedy Space Center is NASA’s primary launch center for human spaceflight. The Saturn V rocket, which launched from the Kennedy Space Center multiple times, was used in the famed Apollo program, including the Apollo 11 mission that landed the first two men on the Moon. The Saturn V was successfully launched 13 times from the Kennedy Space Center. To this date, the Saturn V rocket remains as the tallest, heaviest, and most powerful rocket ever in operation. It holds the world record for the heaviest loads launched and the largest payload capacity to low Earth orbit.
This colorful felt pennant was produced in recognition of the success of the Saturn V rocket and the Kennedy Space Center. The pennant could have been produced to wave at ceremonial events and even parades and rocket launches. The pennant has been framed alongside a NASA patch.
