Thanks to the Seattle Seahawks 24-14 victory over the Washington Redskins in last Sunday's NFC wild-card playoff game, the Seattle city flag is flying over the Wilson Building in downtown Washington.

Mayor Gray tweeted about the flag's raising shortly after it happened.

Seattle will take on the Atlanta Falcons this weekend in the NFL's divisional playoff round.
