The Ratchaphruek (means a royal tree) was only named as Thailand’s national flower in October 2001.
Known locally as the ratchaphruek, the official botanical name of the tree bearing Thailand’s national flower is the Cassia Fistula Linn. The tree might also be called the chaiyaphruek and the actual flower may be referred to as dok koon. The tree is also known as the Golden Shower/Rain Tree because of the vibrant yellow hues of the flowers and the fact that they grow in clusters that seem to tumble from the tree like raindrops.
It usually blooms between February and May. The tree has either leaves or flowers.
Part of the reason the ratchaphruek was chosen as Thailand’s national flower is its bold yellow colour. Yellow is associated with Buddhism, the country’s majority religion. Yellow is also seen as the colour of glory, harmony, and unity.
