It’s annually celebrated on March 13, the anniversary, when the white elephant was added to the old version of the Thai flag. Elephants have always been a part of the history of Thailand. Despite elephants are protected in Thailand, their population is vastly declining during the last century. Nowadays, about 3,000-4,000 elephants live in Thailand, most of them are held in captivity.
