Quick Overview

Backpackflag/Flag Patch Thailand

Size:
6.5 x 4 cm

Product Description

The flag of Thailand consists of five horizontal stripes. The top and bottom are equal-sized red stripes, the middle stripe is blue which is lined above and below by equal-sized white stripes. The blue stripe is double the size of the other four.

Meaning:
The red stripes represent the blood spilt to maintain Thailand's independence. The white stands for purity and is the color of Buddhism which is the country's main religion. Blue is Thailand's national color and it represents the Thai monarchy. The blue is also used to honor Thailand's World War I allies, Great Britain, France, United States and Russia, who all had red, white and blue flags.

History:
The current Thai flag was adopted on September 28, 1917, making it one of the world's older flags. From the mid-19th century until 1916, Thailand, which was called Siam until 1939, used a red based flag with a white elephant on it. That flag was replaced in 1916 with a red-white-red-white-red horizontal striped flag which was modified in 1917, when the blue center replaced red.

Interesting Facts:
The Thai flag is called Triaranga or Triarong, which literally means 'tricolor'.

Even when Thai changed its name from Siam in 1939 and when it was allied with Japan during World War 2 the flag remained the same (source: worldflags101).
