Flag of Thailand

Flag of Thailand

The current flag of Thailand is known as trairanga, which means tricolor. Also, Thailand is sometimes called "the country of a white elephant" since the original flag carried in its center a symbol of elephant. However, the elephant has been in 1917, when the country entered the war, replaced by a blue stripe. Since then, the flag bears a red-white-blue tricolor which should have referred to solidarity with allies in the First World War, especially with France. The flag has not been changed since that time, it has stayed the same even after renaming the country from Siam to Thailand in 1939. The interpretation of colors on the flag is as follows: blue represents the monarchy, the white purity of the nation and Buddhism and the red stands for blood shed by the local population while fighting for freedom.
