12 Flag to fly atop the Space Needle in honor of tomorrow's playoff game

Jan 8 2021, 6:20 pm

At 12:12 pm Friday afternoon, the 12 flag will fly atop the Space Needle.

The flag will fly in celebration of the Seahawks hosting the Rams at Lumen Field on January 9 for the Wild Card round of the playoffs.

All season, the honor of raising the 12 Flag has gone to people and organizations who have been significant positive influences in their communities during the COVID-19 pandemic. This week, the flag will be raised by those who’ve helped the team during their COVID-19 tests: the Seahawks Swab Team.

“It’s been us trying to make sure the Seahawks get the results on time and ensure that everyone who was exposed or at risk is excluded fast and to reconfirm the results before they get into contact with anyone else,” said Victor Omballa, site manager of the trailer testing site, to Seahawks.com.

“If you look at our results, and we’ve been going through this every week, all our people since we started this back in July of 2020, we’ve all continued to test negative. This offers evidence of the team here sticking to the COVID protocols whether they’re within the trailer or outside the trailer with family and friends.”
