The government is inviting public agencies, private firms, and the general public to set up worshiping altars and a portrait of His Majesty the King, along with the Royal Emblem at offices and houses to show respect to the monarch.
The Royal Emblem can be used for the promotion of the Coronation ceremonies, such as in publications, on the national flags, on arches, signs, altars, and at public venues, houses, and government offices, from April until 4 May 2019.
The Royal Emblem can be permanently placed to pay respect to His Majesty the King at buildings specifically built to mark the auspicious occasion, or incorporated on items such as shirts and hats.
The Royal Emblem is prohibited from being placed on breakable items such as glasses, bottles, dishes, utensils, vases, and pitchers, as well as bracelets, pendants, and boxes, except for those related to the Coronation ceremonies.
Government agencies, private organizations and associations who wish to place the Royal Emblem at their offices should send an official request to the Office of the Prime Minister’s Permanent Secretary at Government House, Dusit, Bangkok, 10300, tel. 0 2283 4228-9, fax. 0 2283 4248-9 during 13 March – 4 May 2019.
