Seahawks Fun Facts, Traditions and Glossary

What is a Seattle Seahawks 12?

Seattle boasts some of the most loyal — and loudest — fans in the NFL. In the Northwest, we refer to them as the 12s, as only 11 players are allowed on the field for one team at any time.

  • When playing at CenturyLink, Seahawks opponents have more false starts than anywhere else in the NFL — showing just how much the roar of the crowd makes a difference.
  • In 1984, Seahawks President Mike McCormack retired the number 12 jersey forever, in tribute to how instrumental Hawks fans are to the team’s success.
  • At every home game just before kickoff, the 12 Flag is raised in honor of fans. This tradition began on October 12, 2003, when 12 original season ticket holders first hoisted the flag.
  • The flag-raising honor has gone to everyone from local celebrities to former players. Recent honorees have included owner Paul Allen, “Baby Got Back” rapper Sir Mix-a-Lot, and Jack Patera, the team’s first head coach.

Once in a Blue Friday

Blue Friday is a Seattle Seahawks tradition in which fans wear their favorite Seahawks gear on Fridays to support the team. Originally it was for game day Fridays, but now you’ll see team gear all over the city every Friday during the season.
