A large three-story fresco of a European Union flag torn off by a worker is the work of world-renowned street artist Banksy.

Representatives for the elusive Bristol artist today confirmed to the Bristol Post that the mural, which appeared overnight in Dover, was the work of the man himself.

Social media was on fire on Sunday afternoon after passers-by spotted the huge flag on the side of the old Castle Amusements building on the corner of Townwall Street near the A20.

The massive artwork, which takes up most of the building’s wall, shows a worker on top of a ladder, chiseling out one of the stars.

Dover is a major port for ferries to Calais, France, where Banksy has donated most of its Dismaland exhibits.

A spokesperson for the artist confirmed the news with the Bristol Post this afternoon.

Banksy’s last piece of art in town was a mural on the side of an elementary school.

As the Bristol Post exclusively revealed, this came after Bridge Farm Primary in Whitchurch decided to give a house its name.
