Banksy has responded to the removal of his EU flag/Brexit mural, which has been covered in white paint and scaffolding, the BBC reports.

The artwork first appeared near Dover, England's ferry terminal in May 2017 and depicted a star being chiseled from the EU flag, illustrating the UK's upcoming departure from the European Union. Taking to Instagram, the artist shared a picture of what he'd planned to do to the artwork once Brexit day finally arrives.

The OG plan was to remove almost everything from the flag, leaving just one lone star and a few poorly-removed borders, perhaps as a reminder of the union lost.  "Nevermind," he captioned the post. "I guess a big white flag says it just as well."

It's not yet known either it was painted over or removed for sale purposes. Take a look at what could have been below and scroll through to see what the removal looks like.
