Flag of Thailand (GIF)


The Thai flag consists of five horizontal stripes in red, white, blue, white, and red, from top to bottom, and the middle blue stripe is twice as high as the other stripes. The colors are said to stand for the "nation-religion-king", an unofficial motto of Thailand. The red color represents the land and people, the white color symbolizes the religions, and the blue represents the monarchy. The height-to-width ratio in the flag is 2:3, and the flag was adopted on September 28, 1917.

Its emblem features the Garuda, a hybrid being of half-man and half-eagle, the mythological beast of the Hindu and Buddhist traditions, symbolizing the divine power and authority of the king and considered a symbol of divine and sacred kingship in ancient Thailand.

The Thailand flag is waving on a flagpole rising from the world globe.
Thailand, officially known as the Kingdom of Thailand, is a unitary state in the Indochina Peninsula in Southeast Asia. Its capital is Bangkok, and its population is about 68,864,000.
