The escutcheon of
Nong Kai shows a bush of bamboo stems and a marshland (nong), and in
the background some mountains. History tells us that king
Phra Nang Klao
Phraya Racha Supawadi to lead his troops in the
Krung Sri Satana Kanahut in order to win
back this rebellious city. Racha Supawadi then let
thao Suwo (Boonma) choose a spot close to Krung
Sri Satana Kanahut to build a new city in order
to guard the area against any possible future rebellion. He chose a large marshland with lots of
bamboo, a place known as Nong Kai, and in 1827 Phra
Pathum Thewa Phibaan was appointed by Suwo as the local ruler of this new city.
