    FILE - The Rainbow Flag flies beneath the American flag at the Stonewall National Monument, Oct. 11, 2017, in New York.

    A couple who recently moved to the Chicago suburbs were alarmed when they noticed that someone — possibly one of their new neighbors — stole the rainbow pride flag hanging outside their home, NBC News reported.

    Zadette Rosado said the discovery was alarming for her family — not so much because their flag was stolen, but because they believed its replacement was intended as a message. It was replaced with an American flag. 

    Rosado and Casey Handel moved to Barrington, Illinois, with their two daughters in May. Earlier this month, they were hosting a Christmas party at their home and decorating gingerbread houses when Handal looked out their window and noticed the family’s rainbow flag was missing.
