Look carefully. There is Tim Peake,
the UK astronaut, and underneath, the Locks Heath Rotary banner affixed to the window of the International Space Station. Looks like you can see Italy below. Amazing!
Jim and Dianne Fox visit Locks Heath Club in the UK, where some of the members have personal connections with Tim and persuaded him to take the banner into space. The banner had to be approved as non-toxic, non flammable, and was irradiated so as not to pollute space.  Not surprisingly, it has garnered plenty of media attention:

Come on Marbella Guadalmina, can we not go one better?
