2001 Inkworks American Pride #31 - Symbol of Achievement

Apollo 11 Lunar Module pilot Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin appears uncredited on card #31, "Symbol of Achievement." Aldrin is pictured saluting the American flag on the Moon. The photograph was taken by Commander Neil Armstrong on July 20, 1969.

The card text description reads, "The American flag was raised in space July 1969 when Neil Armstrong placed it on the moon." The eight-foot Lunar Flag Assembly (LFA) was deployed by both Armstrong and Aldrin. The astronauts were only able to plant the flag about 6–8 inches into the jagged lunar soil. The flag was later blown over from the blast of the Lunar Module Eagle ascent.
