Seattle Firefighters Forced To Remove Thin Blue Line Flag

  • Firefighters in Seattle were instructed to take down a “Thin Blue Line” flag from the public area of one of the fire stations.
  • The flag is a symbol that shows support for police officers. A similar symbol, with a thin red line, represents firefighters. Merchandise with that symbol is sold by the local firefighters union.
  • It was recently decided that proceeds from the sale of “Thin Red Line” apparel would be donated to BLM.
