Officials at a Bridgeport church say they believe someone stole a Ukrainian flag they had on display.  
Father Ivan Mazuryk of Blessed Virgin Mary Ukrainian Catholic Church says the flag went missing Friday.
Father Ivan says he hopes it was a harmless prank and not something more sinister. 
"I felt bad because it's a time of war in Ukraine and Russian Federation and when somebody takes down the symbol of your country -- your flag -- you don't know what to think," Ivan says. 
Police are investigating the incident.
Father Ivan says he is asking for the flag to be returned, and that no questions will be asked.
