Wordless Wednesday ~ Passport with stamped, and STAMPS

>> Wednesday, May 26, 2010

Don't be confused, referring to my previous post about getting Passport from the Event called "Happiness of the Father, Happiness of the Children; " the Theme for the 60th Royal Coronation Anniversary Celebration. You can see how the Passport pages are.

At the traditional Coronation Ceremony 60 years ago, His Majesty pronounced the traditional Oath of Accession: “We shall reign with righteousness for the benefits and happiness of the Siamese people.” It is printed inside the Passport at the left side, it is most impressive Oath of Accession and he acts as he said. This is even more impressive.

Kingdom of Thailand consists of 76 provinces, each of them has their own stamp, or you can call Coat of Arm as it represents the famous, well-known, or respectful place/item of itself. This stamp is only used in their legal paper in the name of local government. It is not easy to get this stamp to public like this event does.

This is last page with teaching poem

It is also considered as 60th Royal Marriage Anniversary as well, Thailand Post has launched lovely stamp as Pink and Gold which have Royal couple at marriage day, and these days photo. Both are beautiful of its age.

I think passports are incredibly interesting -- I have seen various artists from different national contexts use them to talk about identity and nationality, and they are always interesting shows!

The stamps are very pretty as well! I think in the US it is rare to get stamps that look so decorative.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and Happy WW!

Those are wonderful souvenirs of the day! I'd get a passport with the rubber stamps and the commemorative stamps too.
