Symbols of Pride were ripped down and torn on the Stepney Green in Monroe just before the end of June.
Members of the Save Our Stepney Task Force, a group that preserves the character of the village of Stepney, put up five rainbow flags.
The president says as the flags were about to be taken down, he noticed some were missing. Other members say they don't understand why someone would do something like this.
The Stepney Volunteer Fire Department fixed the lines the flags were on Friday morning so other flags can fly again on the historic green.
First Selectman Ken Kellog tells News 12 that the vandalism alone on town property is upsetting. He says the nature of this incident goes beyond that, is extremely disturbing and not reflective of our community.
Police are investigating.
