There are six American flags on the moon from the Apollo 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, and 17 missions. Buzz Aldrin during the Apollo 11 mission placed the first flag on the moon.

The flags cost $5.50 USD each, and 5 of the 6 are still casting shadows. However, the material has likely degraded and the colors completely faded, so there would be thirteen white stripes as well as white stars.
