We are partnering with Thailand's Public Relations Department (@prd_official) to celebrate one of the most significant days for all Thailand, the 5th December. Officially National Day of the Kingdom of Thailand, the 5th December is also the birthday anniversary of His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great and Thailand’s Father’s Day.

In recognition of this important day, we are also launching a special emoji which features a map of the Kingdom highlighted in the red, white and blue of the Thai flag. This is the first time emoji in celebration of Thai National Day. The emoji will be auto-activated through a series of Thai language and English language hashtags from today until the 12th of December.
