Will Holland America Fly Flag Of A Winner?

Ships and their flags? The days of skull-and-crossbones are long behind us…but for the occasional Johnny Depp movie. Cruise ships aren't identified so much by the flags they fly any more, although all of them fly flags, usually of the country in which they're registered. 

For Holland America ships, that would be the flag of The Netherlands. That figures, doesn't it?

This weekend, not so much. This weekend, Holland America ships in the Caribbean will (also) be flying the 12th Man Flag. Why, you ask, would ships registered in The 12thNetherlands be flying the flag associated with one of the teams playing in the Super Bowl?

If you have to ask, then you don't know that Holland America's head office is in Seattle…that the Seahawks are underdogs against the Denver Broncos on Sunday…and that the 12th Man is a tribute to Seattle's fans, noisy enough to be considered as influential as a 12th man in a game which plays only 11. 

Lots of them will be waving the flags in East Rutherford, New Jersey at 6 p.m. (EST) on Sunday…if they're not frozen stiff. And some cruisers will likely be watching the 12th Man Flag flap in the breeze.

And the only thing frozen will be the ice cubes in their drinks.
