Thong (flag) Chai Chalermpol is the flag of all three military units, including the Army, Navy, and Air Force, given by His Majesty the King. The Thong Chai Chalermpol flag is considered the most sacred thing to soldiers. It is the honour of that military unit when it comes to war. All soldiers must protect the Chai Chalermpol flag of their unit with their lives. The Chai Chalermphon flag is therefore a symbol of valiant and bravery among all soldiers to fight against the enemy and come back victorious. Because the Chai Chalermpol flag is a flag that has specific regulations both storage and raising the flag on various occasions. Because of their age and fragility, lighting for such precious old fabric together with the gold tinsel required special protection and design from any damage may caused. This include zero UV light source, daylighting protection, humidification control, insect protection and precise colour and light absorbtion backpane material to display.
