Udon Thani new generation: Battle over royal portraits, a monument, and a flag (Part II)

Udorn Thani’s democracy fighters are battling over symbols. Three cherished symbols of the state: the royal portrait, the city’s essential patron saint, and a desecrated flag. Protest leaders say time is on their side and they hope to change this former “Capital of Red Shirts to “the Capital of Democracy.” In Part I, the battles over two symbols were over, but the third, over a flag, remains—and a royal visit.
