What Does It Mean To Wave The Flag?
As a supporter of WSU Athletics, Waving the Flag is more than an expression and means something different to each Coug. Whether it is the elite donor giving more money to the program he/she loves, a season ticket holder renewing tickets or a student waving the flag in front of the Great Wall of China, these are all expressions of Waving the Flag for WSU Athletics.
The Marketing and Promotions Department is dedicated to spreading this message to all Cougars and to the rest of the NCAA. Let us know how you Wave the Flag here send us videos, pictures and stories of how you Wave the Flag for WSU Athletics.
