Thailand unites flesh and blood of Thais.
Anthem MIDI FIle
"Phleng Chat" ("犹犧樅ｸ･犧・ｸ癌ｸｲ犧歩ｸｴ") is the national anthem of Thailand. It was adopted on 10 December 1939. The melody was composed by Peter Feit (Thai name: Phra Jenduriyang), 1883-1968, the son of a German immigrant and royal advisor for music. The words are by Luang Saranupraphan. "Phleng Chat" is Thai for "national anthem", and the song does not officially have any other name.
The anthem was composed a few days after the 1932 coup, and was first broadcast in July 1932. The original lyrics were by Khun Wichitmatra. In 1939, when the name of the country was changed from Siam to Thailand, a competition was launched to create new lyrics, with those by Luang Saranuprapan winning.
Prime minister Phibunsongkhram ordered the anthem to be played every day at 8.00 and 18.00, and ordering the populace to stand up to show respect for the nation. That law is still in force today (photo: 60th anniversary of the accession of Bhumibol Adulyadej /source: Wikipedia).
