’12th Flag’-raising rally in West Seattle tomorrow: New info

Tomorrow’s the big flagraising rally for Seahawks fans outside West Seattle Corporate Center (aka the building with the big flag, Delridge/Andover). We had first word of the rally last weekend, and now we have more info. The 1,500-square-foot “world’s largest 12th Man Flag” goes up at 12:30 pm Thursday, per the update from Metropolitan Market (WSB sponsor) and Bartell Drugs, both of which are headquartered at WSCC. If you can get there earlier, the rally starts at 11 am, with a photo booth, games and contests with prizes, “surprise guests,” food samples from MM, and more. The flag will be raised by former Seahawk Joe Tafoya and WSU Cougars legend/former NFL quarterback Jack Thompson. Yes, it’s the same mega-flag (made by Tacoma’s Flags A’Flying) raised there just before the Seahawks’ Super Bowl victory last winter, and when it goes up tomorrow, it’ll be just hours until game time for the Hawks’ season opener.

P.S. If you use social media, the hashtag will be #The12thFlag.

    Bummer that most folks who don’t work right around there can make it either. But I’ll be with them in spirit and hopefully get to see it as I pass by. I’m not normally for striking that huge American flag that they regularly fly, but for the Seahawks? Oh HELL yeah!
    Go ‘Hawks!
