Grime artist Stormzy has confirmed that Banksy designed the Union Jack stab vest he wore during his headline set at last weekend's Glastonbury Festival. In an emotional and celebratory Instagram post, Stormzy revealed that the stab-proof custom vest was "made by the greatest, most iconic living artist on planet earth, the one and only BANKSY."

Elusive street art legend Banksy had already shared a photograph of Stormzy wearing the black and white Union Jack stab vest he designed on his Instagram page. As we can see, the flag is depicted with the watery paint present in lots of Banksy's work.
