Banksy Silver Flag Unsigned

$ 40,340
  • Description
    Flags shows a group of children and young adults standing victoriously atop a burned out car raising the American flag. The children’s dress and their environment presents them as disenfranchised urban youths. With only one touch of colour – represented by a large gold orSilver (according to the edition) sun or moon – the scene bears a melancholic and mournful tone.

    Banksy’s work is a reference to the iconic photograph Raising the Flag on Iwo Jima by American photographer Joe Rosenthal, taken on February 23, 1945. The photo depicts six US Marines lifting the Stars and Stripes atop Mount Suribachi during the battle of Iwo Jima, in World War II.
