The escutcheon of
Satun shows Phra Samut Theva, the god
of the ocean seated on his throne, a rock in the sea. In the background is a
radiant setting sun. The sea refers to the Andaman Sea, the throne to a local
named ‘Phimaan’ (literally: a dwelling place for gods), and the sunset emphasizes the
location of this province in the West of the southern peninsula.
