Seattle Seahawks fans are famous for being the 12th Man on the field. During games, fans can be seen waving large flags with the number 12 on them. 

But fans will be unable to wave their flags Sunday at Bank of America Stadium against the Carolina Panthers. 

According to an article in the Charlotte Observer, the Panthers changed their banner and flag policy earlier this season after Cam Newton tore down a Green Bay fan's sign. Flags and banners from opposing teams is still allowed, but they can't be larger than 24 in. by 24 in. 

Fans reacted to the policy on social media. 

The top seeded Carolina Panthers host the No. 6 seed Seahawks Sunday. Kickoff is at 1:05 p.m.
