July 1975. A close-up view of the special "gift bag" in which several exchange/gift items will be carried aboard the Apollo Command Module during the joint U.S.-USSR Apollo-Soyuz Test Project mission. Some of these items are seen here alongside the bag. They are the sectionized ASTP Commemorative Plaque, ten 8x12 inch American flags, ten 8.07x16.14 inch (205mm x 410mm) Soviet Union flags, a special box of white spruce tree seeds, and the ASTP Certification to authorize the ASTP docking. The gifts will be presented and the exchange made while the Apollo and Soyuz spacecraft are docked in Earth orbit.
