Per discussion with Dr. Martin Motes, blue Vandas with this much tesselation are hybrids. This was confirmed to him by a scientist from Asia, based on DNA analysis.

He also advised, that in Thailand the name 'Blue Vanda' is used indiscriminately for both V. coerulea, and it's hybrids. Thus, plants are entering the trade as V. coerulea, but in actuality they are hybrids.

We had this discussion before, actually about the same plant in flower last year.
It is very easy to say that orchids are hybrids, or reverse. It is same for other orchids, not only Vanda.
Im just following the namelabels given by the nursery who bred the plant. Indeed this one is coming from Thailand.

I have been in Thailand so many times. Due to my work i had the upportunity to be there every few weeks for some time. Its years ago.
I have seen how the select coerulea and sanderiana developped thru the years. Very interesting!

Peter, it is a spectacular flower, however I will also second the notion that it is likely a hybrid due to the color intensity and tessellation. The proof would be to self it and grow out a few dozens seedlings. Am sure people would line up to help you grow out a few. Just gotta have a few years worth of patience...

Vanda coerulea Male
Default some more V coerulea

Different clones of V coerulea
Thats how the nametag shows.
For some obviously hybrid, for others pure , for some selective breeding. I leave that in the middle, the discussion about that will never stop.
One thing for sure, Its a beautiful flower
