The escutcheon of
Nakhon Nayok shows an
elephant holding a bunch of rice ears
in its trunk and in the background two haystacks. Besides being an allegory of the
city's name, i.e. the produce of the field (na) which is lifted up (yok),
the elephant refers to the fact that this province at in the past
used to have many elephants, as it was a crossing for herds of wild
elephants. There also used to be an important
phaniad or elephant kraal.
