PROVINCIAL ESCUTCHEON

  

 

 

 

 

Roi Et

The escutcheon of Roi Et shows a small island in a lake. On the island stands a prasat with in it the city pillar (lak meuang). The lake is Palahn Chai, a large reservoir in the middle of town containing fresh and clean water, filled to the brim the whole year round. In 1927 the lake was excavated by the local population and thus stands as a symbol of the solidarity of the people. The prasat with its city pillar is the most venerated shrine in town and also its centre.
