Loei

The escutcheon of Loei shows the stupa Phrathat Sri Song Rak (fig.), which was constructed between 1560 and 1563 AD to commemorate the friendship between the Siamese King Mahachakraphat of Krung Sri Ayutthaya and King Chaiya Chetthathirath of Krung Sri Sattanah Khonhut (Vientiane) and ruler of the Laotian kingdom Lan Chang, as well as to demarcate the border between the two kingdoms.
