These are mascots of the Royal Flora 2006 festival. That’s in Thailand recently.
Before I post a pics. I’d like to explain about it. It’s a Thailand’s pride!

The Royal Flora Ratchaphruek is a flower festival scheduled for November 1, 2006, to January 31, 2007, in the Thai city of Chiang Mai. It is one of the grand celebrations being hosted by the Royal Thai Government in honor of King Bhumibol, the world’s longest reigning monarch.
The Ratchaphruek (Cassia Fistula L.) or Golden Shower Tree is the national flower of Thailand. It is also named "Khun" or "Chaiyaphruek". The yellow colour is the colour of Buddhism. Moreover, the Thai people regard yellow as the colour of King as well.

The event is located in 80 hectares of land at the Royal Agricultural Research Center in Mae Hia sub-district, Muang district, Chiang Mai Province in northern Thailand. During the 92 days of the expo, 30 international gardens, such as Japan, South Korea, Belgium, Netherlands, South Africa, Canada, are arranged, and more than 2,200 species of tropical plants and flowers are presented to the world in this exhabition.

And these are the mascots for this festival. Since they’re mascots. I could add suffix   -tan, -kun, -san, right?


Nong Khun, Team Leader of the Royal Flora Ratchaphruek mascots is also known by his full name, â€Å"Ratchaphruek” which means the Golden Shower Tree, the national tree of Thailand.
Nong Khun and his buddies have been on a Royal Flora Ratchaphruek tour around Thailand. Nong Khun is a nature lover and a thrill-seeker at heart. He likes action and adventure … and constantly goes in search of new knowledge. He’s creative – always coming up with new thoughts and ideas and thinking up new challenges for his friends.


Nong Kulap represents the Queen Sirikit Rose, a hybrid tea rose considered to be ‘rose royalty’. A cross between the Color Wonder and Golden Giant varieties of rose, the Queen Sirikit Rose is a hybrid tea rose of impressive quality, noted for its large blossom consisting of multiple layers of delicately fragrant bright yellow petals trimmed with a reddish hue growing from a long strong stem. Nong Kulap is sweet, smart, gentle, polite, gracious, humble, patient, cautious and thorough. She’s a modern young lady but well-endowed with the fine qualities of a traditional Thai lady. She’s equally skilled in Thai culinary art and traditional Thai handicraft.


Nari, representing Lady’s Slipper, paphiopedilum
Nari is a naughty little princess who is Kulap’s neighbor. A mischievious character, Nari always gets into trouble and leaves a trail of chaos wherever she goes. Smart… in sort of a cheeky sort of way, Nari has many funny stories to share with us.


Bua, symbolic of the lotus, represents all that is pure and embodies Buddhist virtues. Bua is a conservative Thai beauty who diligently observes time-honored Thai customs and traditions in every detail. Given Bua’s aristocratic upbringing, Bua is highly skilled in traditional Thai art and crafts such as the preparation of Thai food and desserts, the art of making floral garlands, fruit and vegetable carving and other crafts. Bua is every bit a true Thai girl. She’s sensitive, easily frightened and cries a lot. Bua and Kulap are childhood friends and are often seen together.


Kan Yao represents durian — ‘king’ of tropical fruit. Kan Yao is a young lad from Chanthaburi province. He has a robust well-built physique. Kan Yao is a good-natured, fun-loving and down to earth sort of guy. He’s a natural comedian ever ready to share light-hearted jokes with his friends and is much loved by everyone he meets. Kan Yao loves to read and has a keen interest in horticulture. He also enjoys spending time with Tha Thung, from whom he gains much knowledge about horticulture.


Mangkhut represents mangosteen. ‘Queen’ of tropical fruits, mangosteen has delicate snow-white flesh that is deliciously sweet and flavorful. Mangkhut is a hot favorite with the Kan Yao lads. Self-assured and confident, Mangkhut is a true socialite. She indulges in luxury and is always ‘in trend’. Also an extrovert, Mangkhut loves to sing and model, posing for fashion photos at every opportunity. Mangkhut’s vocabulary is distinctly T-inglish.


Chon represents the Chinese radish, native to the Asian continent. A country boy from the northern hills with a love of adventure, Chon has dreams of traveling the world so Chinese radish becomes known to the world. Chon is temperamental and short-tempered and often creates a scene. He’s really not quite with it and is frequently out of step. He sees himself as a ‘cool dude’, clever and courageous but when the going gets tough, Chon is first to flee the scene. Jon vows to play tricks on Nari but as he’s forever tripping over himself, he has yet to succeed.


Ta Thung is a gentle and kind old man we affectionately call ‘grandpa’ (‘khun ta’ in Thai). Ta Thung represents the scarecrow, the loyal and trusted friend of the farmers. Baked by the sun and battered by the wind and rain, the scarecrow stands guard and remains vigilant chasing away birds that threaten to invade the rice-fields. Never short of entertaining stories to share with his young friends, Ta Thung is adored by the children. He’s also their best friend. A wise and knowledgeable man, the young ones seek his advice. He listens to them patiently and helps solve their problems. Kan Yao, the young man from Chanthaburi, frequently stops by to seek Ta Thung’s advice on matters related to agriculture… as well as affairs of the heart. Time after time, Kan Yao walks away with sound advice and is never disappointed.

Oops. Something's wrong. This is the correct one.


Fak Bua represents the plant watering can. A young lad who tends the gardens, Fak Bua loves gardening with his heart and soul. He waters the plants, tills the soil and looks after his precious plants with tender love and care everyday so they blossom and bloom. When friends squabble and fight and tempers flare, Fak Bua cools things down. He’s loved by all.


Chon represents the Chinese radish, native to the Asian continent. A country boy from the northern hills with a love of adventure, Chon has dreams of traveling the world so Chinese radish becomes known to the world. Chon is temperamental and short-tempered and often creates a scene. He’s really not quite with it and is frequently out of step. He sees himself as a ‘cool dude’, clever and courageous but when the going gets tough, Chon is first to flee the scene. Jon vows to play tricks on Nari but as he’s forever tripping over himself, he has yet to succeed.
