MANILA -- (UPDATED) Seattle Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin carried the Philippine flag onto Century Link Field on Sunday to honor the victims of super typhoon Yolanda.

According to the Seattle Times, Baldwin has family members living in the Philippines, including his grandmother.

News reports added that Baldwin’s relatives in the Philippines are okay but this didn't stop him from showing his support by carrying the country’s flag onto the field before Seattle’s win over the Minnesota Vikings.

The photo was posted by the football team on its official Twitter account.

“Please continue supporting #Haiyan relief. @DougBaldwinJr appreciates your generosity. #PinoyPower,” the Seahawks said in a tweet.

Netizens, however, noted that the Philippine flag has the red bar on top, which is used only during times of war.

"This is dope but he held the flag wrong side up! Red on top means the country is at war,” Twitter user Miguel Moldez posted calling the attention of the Seahawks and Baldwin.

“We are fighting the devastation of #Haiyan which has been worse than many war-torn regions of the world,” the Seahawks replied back.

Hours later, Baldwin took to Twitter to apologize for the upside-down flag.

"If I offended anyone of the Philippines, it was not my intent. I only meant to call attention to the plight of the people devastated by typhoon Haiyan. The aftermath of the typhoon can be compared to conditions after a battle during war. Leyte is battling to overcome the ravages of typhoon Haiyan. My blessings and well wishes are with the families impacted by this disaster," he said in a three-part tweet.
