A St George's flag which has been spray-painted by Banksy has emerged for sale for £300,000.<br />
<br />
The street artist emblazoned the 52ins by 37ins flag with the controversial message 'people who enjoy waving flags don't deserve to have one'.<br />
<br />
The artwork is believed to date from circa 2003, with a label on its back indicating it was displayed at the Lazarides Gallery, a London venue run by Steve Lazarides, Banksy's former photographer and agent.<br />
<br />
The flag was acquired by a British private collector several years ago and is now going under the hammer with London-based Forum Auctions.
