  Wan Chaleum Phra Chonma Phansa

 

Thailand

On Wan Chaleum Phra Chonma Phansa, the birthday of King Bhumipon Adunyadet, company buildings across the nation are adorned with the yellow personal royal flag of the monarch (fig.), as well as the national flag and well-wishing posters. Originally, this building in Bangkok had on this day lighting in the colours of the thong trai rong (fig.).

 

In addition, shrines called Sum Chaleum Phra Kian, with large pictures of the Thai monarch are erected and adorned with flowers and other offerings, and across the country fireworks (fig.) are held.
