PROVINCIAL ESCUTCHEON

  

 

 

 

 

Phetchabun

The escutcheon of Phetchabun shows a tobacco plantation (fig.) and in the background a high mountain with a sparkling gem at the top. The tobacco estate points to the cultivation of tobacco as the local heritage of this region, whilst the mountains refer to the landscape. The gem (in Thai ‘pet’ or ‘petch’) refers to the natural resources of the land which gave this province its name and that at some point in amphur Lomsak quartz was quarried.
