What does the Thai Airways logo and design stand for?
I’ve always found Thai Airways’ new brand image to be very appealing – purple, gold, and very traditional shapes. But I never really knew what it meant and stood for. So I decided to do some digging around, and here’s what I found. This description is by an Airliners.net member, Mathias Krewedl
The ornament consists of three main things: Firstly, it contains a magnolia blossom (indicated with the pink part), secondly we can find a stylised version of the typical Thai salutation “Wai”, if you rotate the logo 90 degrees in a clock-wise direction (only in this picture though) and as a third it represents the characteristically pitched roofs. And all that put into one with the colors of gold, standing for the temples, the purple representing the tropical orchids as well as the Thai silk’s glamor – a true piece of art!
Hope it douses the curiosity of other Thai Airways fans. Which are some of your favorite liveries? What do you think they stand for? Let’s hear it in the comments section…
