Abstract: The Kostant convexity theorem for real flag manifolds is generalized to a Hamiltonian framework. More precisely, it is proved that if $ f$ is the momentum mapping for a Hamiltonian torus action on a symplectic manifold $ M$ and $ Q$ is the fixed point set of an antisymplectic involution of $ M$ leaving $ f$ invariant, then $ f(Q) = f(M) = $ a convex polytope. Also it is proved that the coordinate functions of $ f$ are tight, using "half-turn" involutions of $ Q$.
