His Majesty the King’s initials – Pho Po Ro – in the middle of the royal crest are in golden yellow, signifying the day of birth of His Majesty. They are bordered in gold on a blue background, surrounded by a circular frame in golden yellow, signifying that His Majesty the King is the centre of Thai hearts throughout the country.
Above the royal initials is the number 9, meaning the ninth monarch of the House of Chakri. The number is under the Great Crown of Victory, one of the royal regalia and a symbol of the reigning monarch.
The royal initials are flanked by two lotus-bud tops in gold under the seven-tiered umbrellas of state. On the outside of the lotus-bud tops, and circling behind the initials, is a curved frame with designs in gold on a green background, the colour of might, representing the birth of His Majesty and also meaning fertility and peacefulness.
Below the royal initials is a white running rabbit, which means the auspicious occasion of His Majesty’s 7th cycle birthday anniversary, coinciding with the Year of the Rabbit. The rabbit is featured on a blue background, with a running scroll design, meaning the progress of Thailand under the auspices of His Majesty the King.
Underneath is a gold-bordered pink ribbon, emblazoned with the title “The Celebrations on the Auspicious Occasion of His Majesty the King’s 7th Cycle Birthday Anniversary 5th December 2011.”
