WATCH: Dave Matthews raises 12 flag high above the Space Needle

SEATTLE (AP) — Musician and Seahawks fan Dave Matthews raised the 12 Flag Thursday on top of the Seattle Space Needle as the city rallies for its team in the Super Bowl.

The 25-by-35-foot blue flag with the white number 12 will fly through the weekend as Seattle takes on the Patriots at the NFL championship game in Arizona.

Hall of Fame left tackle Walter Jones raised the 12th man flag for the NFC title game against the Packers two weeks ago and it was in tatters after heavy winds that weekend.
