Among these flowers grown there by officials and volunteers since August for this great display of loyalty were 102,000 French marigold plants in two types – Bonanza Yellow and Durango Yellow – and 3,000 yellow daffodils which were reportedly the late King’s favourite.
Yellow also represents the late King’s birthday colour, as he was born on a Monday.
Royal Cremation ceremonies and related rituals for the late monarch, who reigned in Thailand for seven decades, are set to take place in late October and run for five days.
