Sailors and their families take photos with the Seattle Seahawks’ 12 Flag and participate in a Pep Rally on Naval Base Kitsap-Bangor Jan. 6. The “Seagals” cheerleaders, Seahawks’ mascot “Blitz”, the “Blue Thunder” drumline, and former Seahawks players were present at the event.
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.
