PROVINCIAL ESCUTCHEON

  

 

 

 

 

Satun

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 tambon named ‘Phimaan’ (literally: a dwelling place for gods), and the sunset emphasizes the location of this province in the West of the southern peninsula.
