Our top 10 favorite photos of Seahawks fans in faraway places

Fans of the Seattle Seahawks sure know how to show their colors no matter where in the world their work, school or vacations takes them. Here are some of favorite shots from our Fan Frenzy gallery.

But before we get to that first shot, Edmonds-based travel writer Rick Steves must have been on the same wavelength Friday night when we were putting this together. Check out a gallery of his guides in Europe proudly showing off their “12” flags.

Now on to our shots:



This group of Seahawks fans in Antarctica shows their colors aboard the Seabourn Quest.

From Peter Butz: “This is a photo of my son Taylor (on the left in the Earl Thomas jersey) with a 12th Man flag in the Galapagos Islands. Evidence is the Galapagos tortoise in the foreground! Go Hawks!”



From Seattle, but representing down in Elbow Cay, The Bahamas. Submitted by Steve Olson.



From Lance K.: “My sister is missing the game this week since she is on the way to Antarctica this week but is showing some Seahawks love by displaying her 12 flag in Tierra del Fuego before hopping on a boat to the South Pole.”



From Richard Carmody of Yakima: “While diving off the island of Yap in Micronesia on January 21, 2015, I showed my Seahawk spirit to some passing sharks with the 12th man flag.”



From Ryan Ki of Seattle: “12’s at the Great Wall in Jinshanling,China. It is not well traveled so it was really great not to have all the hordes of tourists. It is very impressive. You have to wonder how they got all that stone up there. It goes on for 13,170 miles.”



From 200 miles north of the Arctic Circle in Sweden, Seahawk green dances across the sky in the northern lights. Submitted by Derek Richert of Shelton, Wash., and UW graduate and lifelong Seahawks fan.

Kristin Krause is working and traveling in New Zealand for the year. She can’t be here to cheer on the Hawks, but she’s found a network of 12’s on the other side of the world in Queensltown, New Zealand, who get together to watch the games.
