An award-winning chip shop in the U.K., Golden Chippy, has been told by the local council that it must remove a Union flag mural outside its shop.

According to The Daily Mail, Greenwich council, where the shop is located,  said they received a “‘number of complaints’ about the mural” which features the phrase ‘A Great British Meal,’ saying it was an ‘unauthorised advert.’

GB News reports:

The shop’s owner, Chris Kanizi and his staff were left puzzled by the decision from Greenwich Council, who said they made the order after “a number of complaints [were] made to local ward councillors.”

However, nearby residents have spoken out in favour of the mural, with one even telling GB News that it reminded them of a Banksy painting.

One resident said: “It doesn’t offend me at all. It’s a fish and chip shop isn’t it? I’ve got nothing against it. It’s just a part of the advertising.”

Another said: “I think it’s quite good and quite beautiful. It shows the flag of Great Britain and I think that’s good. I don’t think they should take it down.”
