The City of Renton on Monday updated the monument sign at City Hall proclaiming the city as "Home of the Seahawks" to reflect Sunday's big win.

Where the sign last week proclaimed the team NFC Champions, the updated version features an image of the Lombardi Trophy and the phrase "Super Bowl XLVII Champions."

The change was made early Monday afternoon.

The sign near the Virginia Mason Athletic Center was also changed during the night to reflect the win, but city officials said they did not make that change and said it must have been the team who replaced the panel through the night.
