Representatives for the artist, whose identity is not publicly known, confirmed to Reuters that it is by Banksy, whose verified Instagram account shared photos of the work.
In the painting, a worker is seen chipping away at one of the flag’s 12 stars, which are said to “stand for the ideals of unity, solidarity and harmony among the peoples of Europe,” according to the EU’s website.
“The number of stars has nothing to do with the number of member countries, though the circle is a symbol of unity,” the website states.
