This iconic stencil illustration continues to stand out among all of the Bristol artist's work. The subject, who appears to be involved in a riot, wears a handkerchief and backwards cap and is depicted armed with a bouquet of flowers instead of a Molotov cocktail. The complete work is done in black and white, except the flowers, which are in color. The work has been reproduced in the form of prints, phone cases, T-shirts, and even tattoos.
Banksy leads us to believe the subject has armed himself for a riot or a war. The substitute of the flowers for a weapon portrays peace and hope in place of destruction. The work appears on the front and back cover of Banksy Wall and Piece, the widely popular 2005 compilation book featuring the artist's work.
