Thailand

Mail delivery in Thailand is done in a variety of ways, depending on the geographical situation and publicized by the Young Postman (fig.), the Thailand Post's mascot, on a set of definitive postage stamps (fig.). In many a place Thai postmen drive motorcycles on their daily rounds.

 

Drivers typically wear a red helmet with a white line in its centre, and either a grey or black-and-red uniform jacket with Thailand Post's logo (fig.) on it, i.e. an envelop in the form of a paper airplane, made in red, white and blue, the colours of the national flag of Thailand (fig.).
