Parisa Pananont, marketing communications manager of Thailand Post, said the stamp, which is 124mm long, is the country's longest stamp, followed by the 116mm royal barge Suphannahongsa collection issued in 1997. She said the stamp is designed to educate children about the AEC which comes into effect in 2015.
It features the national costumes of 10 Asean member countries and their national flags in alphabetical order.
The commemorative stamp, costing 5 baht apiece, is available for sale on Children's Day which falls on Jan 12.
