Anthem Lyrics

"Phleng Chat"

Pra thet thai ruam luead nu'a chat chu'a thai

Pen pra cha rat pha thai kho'ng thai thuk suan

Anthem Lyrics English

Thailand unites flesh and blood of Thais.

Nation of the people; belonging to the Thais in every respect.

Long maintained [has been] the independence

Because the Thais seek, and love, unity.

Thais are peace-loving;

But at war we're no cowards.

Sovereignty will not be threatened

Sacrificing every drop of blood for the nation

Hail the nation of Thailand, long last the victory, Cheers

Flag History The flag adopted in 1916 was red with two white stripes, but the central portion was altered to blue. It was an expression of solidarity with WWI allies (United Kingdom, France, United States and Russia), whose flags used the red, white and blue. The flag is given the name Trairanga which means tricolor.

Red symbolizes the blood shed for their country, white for the purity of the people protected by their religion and blue is for the monarchy.
Flag Date of Adoption 28 September 1917
Flag Symbolism five horizontal bands of red (top), white, blue (double width), white, and red
