Amazonians spotted the flag above the iconic steps between Doppler and the Meeting Center in downtown Seattle.

Even if you’re not a hockey fan, chances are you’ve heard the buzz around the Seattle Kraken recently, and with good reason. In only their second season, the Kraken are now the first-ever expansion team to beat the defending Stanley Cup champions in their first playoff series.

The Kraken won the Colorado Avalanche series in Game 7 on April 30 with a 2-1 win, advancing the Seattle team to round 2 of the playoffs.
