This classic Banksy piece on the side of a chemists is from 2008. It shows three kids in an American style pledge of allegiance scene around a flag pole. The flag being a Tesco plastic carrier bag.

Note how the flag pole is actually some ducting for electric cables.

It's got some perspex covering on it, additions and alterations have appeared and disappeared and reappeared!
