PROVINCIAL ESCUTCHEON

  

 

 

 

 

Nong Bua Lamphu

The escutcheon of Nong Bua Lamphu has the image of king Naresuan in front of a sala holding the Sword of State (Phra Saeng). In the background there are mountains (phu) and a marshland (nong) with lotus flowers (bua). About 900 years ago this town was called Nong Bua Lumphu, a reference to both the lowlands (lum) and the mountains (phu). It was then part of Krung Sri Satana Kanahut.
