LYNDON CENTER — Authorities are investigating a possible hate crime at Northern Vermont University where a Progress Pride flag was stolen sometime over the weekend. The raising of the flag on the university’s campus was celebrated on Friday as part of NVUnity Presents: Pride Week! Pictures on university social media space show students raising the Progress Pride and the flag flying in the foreground with the American flag on a different pole in the distant background. The Progress Pride flag is based on the original rainbow Pride flag created in 1978 but to reflect the diversity within the LGBTQ community.
