Flag of Thailand (GIF)

The flag of Thailand (Thai: ธงชาติไทย), known as the "Tricolor," 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, the Thai people, and the nation's history; the white color symbolizes the religions, Buddhism, and the purity of Thai culture; and the blue color represents the monarchy. The flag is a reflection of Thailand's identity as a predominantly Buddhist nation and its unity among its people, regardless of their diverse backgrounds. The simplicity and elegance of the design make it a distinctive and cherished national emblem.

The emblem of Thailand, also known as the "Garuda Emblem" or "Phra Khrut Pha," features the mythical creature Garuda, a hybrid being of half man and half eagle, the mythological beast of the Hindu and Buddhist traditions and considered a symbol of divine and sacred kingship in ancient Thailand. The Garuda is a revered symbol in Thai culture, symbolizing royal power, protection, and the monarchy itself. In the emblem, Garuda is depicted with its wings outstretched, signifying Thailand's authority and influence. Above the Garuda, there is a small royal crown, representing the monarchy's significance in Thai society. The emblem encapsulates Thailand's strong connection to its monarchy, its cultural heritage, and the enduring role of the monarchy in the nation's history and identity.
