Flag raising ceremony at the Space Needle

At 10:00 am this morning, Thursday, November 5th, 2009, the Seattle Police Honor Guard will raise a 20 X 30 foot (600 square feet) flag on top of the Space Needle to honor our fallen brother, Officer Timothy Brenton.
 
This flag will be flown on top of the Space Needle from 10:00 am today through Friday evening, and has been donated by the Space Needle Corporation.  Eventually this flag will be given to the Brenton family. 
 
The flag has a large Seattle Police Badge with a black band through the middle.  To the right of the badge is the Seattle Police emblem.  Centered under the badge and emblem is Officer Benton’s serial number #6699.  The background is solid white.
 
Our heartfelt thanks goes out to the Space Needle Corporation for their generous contribution to commemorate and honor our fallen brother.
