  Logo Ministry of Info & Comm. Technology

 

Thailand

The logo of the Ministry of Information and Communication Technology consists of the Phra Phut, the Thai god of commerce and speech (fig.), holding a book and a sword, the first symbolizing his knowledge in various sciences, the latter symbolizing his sharp intelligence. His head is surrounded by an aureole, which shows his enlightened wisdom. He is placed in a circle, with a flame-like curl at the top that represents commonsense, and a wave-like knot at the bottom, which refers to his embodiment of knowledge and information.
