The national flag of Thailand is raised every morning at 8:00 and lowered every evening at 6:00. It was introduced in 1917 by King Vajiravudh (Rama VI). Its two horizontal red stripes symbolize the land and its people.

The white horizontal stripes represent the purity of Buddhism, the nation’s main religion. The wide blue band across the centre stands for the monarchy. Before 1917, the flag had a picture of a white elephant against a red background.
