The anti-Brexit mural was originally painted in May 2017. On 25 August 2019, a massive scaffolding was raised over the mural. On 10 September, the scaffolding was taken down, and the piece of art was gone. Whether the painting had been removed from the wall, or, if it had been whitewashed, is unclear. A few days later, Banksy published his plans for the mural for the day of the Brexit: Screenshot from Banksy’s Instagram. The lone craftsman and the flag crumpled on the ground
In his own words:
I had planned that on the day of Brexit I was going to change the piece in Dover to this..
But seems they’ve painted over it.
Nevermind. I guess a big white flag says it just as well.”
