Seattle Times (Erik Lacitis) reports:

The news tip a few days ago said:

"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." …

Darold Norman Stangeland lives at the [house].

"That's a Norwegian flag," he says. "It's been up there since the start of the Olympics."

The Norwegian flag has a red background, with an off-center white-and-blue cross.
