The country icon for Birds of Thailand at Sibagu is nok, the orthographic form of the Thai word for bird, nók. It consists of the letters (n) and (k). There is no explicit indication of the vowel 'o' or the tone (high), but these are understood from Thai phonological and orthographical rules. The Thai alphabet is derived from the Old Khmer alphabet, which was in turn derived from the Vattelatu alphabet, a Southern Brahmic alphabet of India.
