Donald Trump is preparing to visit his golf courses in Scotland this week, so locals raised a flag to, uh, greet him.

A Mexican flag has been spotted flying next to the grounds of Trump International Golf Links near Aberdeen, a clear retort to the Republican presidential candidate’s calls to build a wall between Mexico and the United States in order to bar Mexican immigrants he so controversially labelled criminals and rapists.

According to BuzzFeed News, a group of residents who are opposed to Trump’s development in the area raised the flag as part of their campaign against the golf course and its owner.

“The point of the flag is to show solidarity with the Mexicans and every other group that Trump has decried, derided, insulted, and tried to marginalise,” said David Milne, a 25-year resident.
