Flag of Thailand

Name: Trairanga (Thai: ธงไตรรงค์, RTGS: thong trai rong), 'Tricolour flag'
Use: National flag, civil and state ensign
Proportion: 2:3
Adopted: 28 September 1917 (standardized on 30 September 2017)
Design: Five horizontal stripes of red, white, blue, white and red, the middle stripe twice as wide as the others.
Designed by: King Vajiravudh (Rama VI)

The flag of the Kingdom of Thailand (Thai: ธงไตรรงค์; RTGS: thong trai rong, meaning 'tricolour flag') shows five horizontal stripes in the colours red, white, blue, white and red, with the central blue stripe being twice as wide as each of the other four. The design was adopted on 28 September 1917, according to the royal decree issued by Rama VI that year. Since 2016, that day is a national day of importance in Thailand celebrating the nation's flag.

The colours are said to stand for nation-religion-king, an unofficial motto of Thailand, red for the land and people, white for religions and blue for the monarchy, the last having been the auspicious colour of Rama VI. As the king declared war on Germany that July, some note the flag now bore the same colours as those of the UK, France, Russia and the United States.

Design
The Flag Act of BE 2522 (1979) stipulates the design of the national flag as "rectangular in shape with 6 part width and 9 part length, divided into five stripes throughout the length of the flag; with the middle stripe being 2 part wide, of deep blue colour, and the white stripes being 1 part wide next to each side of the deep blue stripes, and the red stripes being 1 part wide next to each side of the white stripes. The National Flag shall also be called the Tri-Rong flag".
