For 13 years, from 1977 to 1991 I had at the request of S.S. Kryukov, the 1st Deputy Chief Designer, to paint the flight pennants sketches which were manufactured by the Leningrad Mint. Pennants were made of lightweight aluminum and were covered with colored enamel. At my sketches 28 different space pennants were done. There were 2 types of them. First type was devoted to new spaceships or Orbital stations – “Soyuz” (Union) and “Progress”, “Salut-6” (Firework-6), “Salyut-7” (Firework-7), “MIR” (Peace). Others were devoted to the international space missions – “USSR-France”, “USSR-India”, “USSR-Japan” and many others. On one side of the pennants were coats of arms of countries participating in the flight against a background of flags of these countries. On he other side were the pictures of spaceships and orbital stations at which they flew. Spaceships and Orbital stations on the pennants were portrayed accurately with all external parts – antennas, docking units, solar panels and handrails etc. Usually eight pennants were taken on the spaceship board. And after returning to the Earth the were sent to the Space Museum and to the member countries of the flight.
