PROVINCIAL ESCUTCHEON

  

 

 

 

 

Chanthaburi

The circular escutcheon of Chanthaburi shows a radiating moon and in its centre a rabbit. On the one hand it stands for the beauty and tranquility of its landscape and cool nature, and on the other hand it refers to the name of the town that literally means ‘city of the moon’. The rabbit represents ‘the rabbit on the moon’, which is visible as a dark spot (fig.) on the moon's surface (fig.).
