The Thai government has ordered the Thai national flag at all government agencies and state enterprises to be lowered to half-mast today (Friday) for three days, as Thailand expresses condolence for the passing of Britain’s Queen Elizabeth II.
The Thai national flag at Government House was lowered to half-mast this morning.
Acting Government Spokesman Anucha Burapachaisri said this morning that the Thai government is deeply saddened with the passing of Queen Elizabeth II, who was globally respected and praised.
He also said that the government is in contact with the British Embassy in Bangkok about the convenient timing for a government representative to sign the book of condolence at the embassy.
Deputy Prime Minister Wissanu Krea-ngam said this morning that the flag is usually flown at half-mast for three days, to mourn the passing of the head of state of another country, and a member of the Thai Royal Family will attend the funeral.
