PROVINCIAL ESCUTCHEON

  

 

 

 

 

Trat

The escutcheon of Trat shows has a sailing boat, floating pontoon with fishing traps and the island of Koh Chang, illustrating its connections to the sea and offshore fishing. The name Trat is probably derived from a locally abundant shrub called ‘krat’ from which the local people used to make brooms. The region was formerly called ‘Krat’, but was later changed to Trat.
