The goat is the symbol of composure and calmness.  Persons who were born in this year are likely to be calm, prudent, reliable, and kind to other people.  They are also peaceful, patient, careful, unselfish, honest and disciplined.

The series of lunar year postage stamps has been created annually since 2003 which is the year of Horse and finished the circle of 12 lunar months in 2014.  This year,  the first issue of new cycle begins which depicts the painting that Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn has designed.  Her birthday anniversary is also in the year of Goat.  HRH give an importance to stamp and consider each stamp set, which is the great contribution she has given to Thailand Post.  This is also the auspicious occasion to celebrate her birthday anniversary on April 2nd, 2015.
