THAILAND COLOUR CODE
Coloured shirt has become a way that people in Thailand use to express their political and social belief. I got triggered when I keep hearing people say ‘what shirt I could wear then?’, because they’re afraid to be mistaken as part of a certain group.
This chart is made not only to identify the variety of groups that play the leading role in this political crisis, but also to reflect our current confusing and distinctive society. Moreover, I want to lighten up this situation a bit.
It would be great if people can perceive these symbolic colours as open choices, not constraints. All in all, this still means that we’re living in a great country that gives us freedom to be.
