(CNN) - Photos of a blimp portraying London Mayor Sadiq Khan in a bikini will be seen in the skies over the United Kingdom's capital this weekend.

More than 3,000 people donated to fund the 29-foot balloon which depicts Mayor Sadiq Khan reclining in a small yellow bikini.

Protesters have been given permission to fly the Crowd-Funded balloon in Westminster.

The Crowd-Funding campaign was set up after London authorities allowed a "Trump Baby" blimp to be flown during President Trump's visit to Britain last month.

Khan was outspoken in his opposition to Trump's visit.

He criticized the U.S. president over his tweets following the terror attacks in London last year.
