Royal Heritage Flag for the Siamese King born in the USA
Currently the longest reigning monarch of the planet is Bhumibol Adulyadej and his majesty was born in Cambridge, Massachusetts. He is officially the King of Thailand, formerly called Siam. He was not originally intended to become the King of Siam, but after his older brother died the younger brother became 'King Boomee.'
Since he was born in Massachusetts he could easily claim US citizenship. In some sense he is a virtual King of the USA. No doubt his US birthright helped him side with the US during the US-Vietnam War. In the photo here, you can see him addressing congress in front of then Vice President Nixon back in the 1960s.
So in honor of this 'King of Cambridge, Massachusetts' here is a flag that combines the royal standard of Thailand with the Original American 13 Colonies design.
