BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) The student government at the University of Vermont says a Black Lives Matter flag that had been flying at its Burlington campus has been stolen.

The flag sponsored by the Student Government Association first appeared on Thursday to show support for the school community as many struggle with violence and seek justice. It was supposed to remain there through the weekend

But the student government says the flag was stolen Saturday night. The group says the action underscores why the country needs to openly discuss the injustices many Americans face based on the color of their skin.

The flag went up following police shootings in both North Carolina and Oklahoma, and deadly protests in North Carolina.

School officials replaced the flag Sunday afternoon.

Campus police are investigating the theft.
