Five horizontal stripes (red, white, blue double height, white, red).

Meaning

Red symbolizes the blood of the people; white sybolizes purity and the Buddhist faith; the blue stripe was added to the flag in 1917 as representative of the monarchy as well as a sign of solidarity with the then Allies. It replaced the historical symbol of an elephant. Thailand is also known as the land of the white elephant.
