Rear Adm. Gary Mayes, Commander, Navy Region Northwest, signs the Seattle Seahawks’ 12 Flag in NRNW headquarters on Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor.
In October 2016, the Seattle Seahawks gave the US Navy the 12 Flag during a change of command ceremony. The flag passed from the Marine Corps, who held the flag from 2015-16. The flag will travel to sea and shore units across Navy Region Northwest from 2016-17, where Sailors and Navy civilians will sign and take photos with it.
