  Royal Thai Police (helmet)

 

Thailand

The former coat of arms of Siam (fig.), is still used as the coat of arms of the Royal Thai Police and appears on the hats and helmets of all police officers in its full form. It consists of the Great Crown of Victory (fig.), two chattra (fig.), a chakra disc with a trident (fig.), a shield with three sections,  Erawan (fig.), an elephant, and two kris (fig.).

 

There is also a Raja-singha and a Gajasingha (fig.), as well as the other regalia (fig.), i.e. the Sword of State (fig.), the Golden Yak's Tail (fig.), the Royal Sceptre (fig.), the Golden Fan, and the Golden Sandals (fig.), while in the background is a draped royal robe. There is also the chain of the Order of Chulachomklao and a banner with a Pali text in Thai script, that translates as ‘unity of the masses brings happiness.
