Seattle person confuses Norwegian flag with Confederate flag

Bestselling true crime author Rebecca Morris spotted a flag like the one seen above flying outside one of her Seattle neighbor's homes. She tipped off the Seattle Times, stating:

Suddenly there is a Confederate flag flying in front of a house in my Greenwood neighborhood. It is at the north-east corner of 92nd and Palatine, just a block west of 92nd and Greenwood Ave N. I would love to know what this 'means' … but of course don't want to knock on their door. Maybe others in the area are flying the flag? Maybe it's a story? Thank you.

Reporter Erik Lacitis investigated.

"That's a Norwegian flag," said the Norwegian-American man who lives at the home. "It's been up there since the start of the Olympics."
