Flag that Flew Above the Glomar Explorer

Artifact Details

The Glomar Explorer was explained to the public as a deep-sea mining vessel, but was actually built to recover a sunken Soviet submarine.

This flag flew atop the Glomar Explorer and would have witnessed the stand-off of three Soviet vessels encircling the Glomar Explorer as they attempted to discern why the American was anchored in the middle of the Pacific Ocean.
