Graphic design representing modern telecommunication and the symbol of the 150th Anniversary of the ITU, combined with Thailand's identity in the world community, namely: buildings with traditional Thai roofs, including with ngao and haang hong, a bell-shaped pagoda, a postman wearing a motorbike helmet delivering mail to a man, a communications satellite, a man speaking on a cell phone, a woman sitting at a desk wearing head phones and looking at a TV screen, a medical doctor writing with a pen on a tablet. Above the latter three people is a black icon that indicates connectivity and in the centre of the stamp is the number 150, printed in white and with the 0 represented by the 150th Anniversary logo of the International Telecommunication Union, i.e. a circle with latitude and longitude lines, symbolizing a world globe, crossed with a slant thunderbolt, and the acronym ITU. Underneath it, also in white, is the founding year 1865 and the modern year 2015.
