Seattle author mistakes Norwegian flag for Confederate flag, alerts local newspaper

When a New York Times bestselling author noticed a blue-and-red flag flying near her home, she tipped off the local newspaper to report a “Confederate flag.” But there was just one little problem – it was a Norwegian flag.

The tip-off to the Seattle Times came from true-crime author Rebecca Morris. “Hi. 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.”
