PROVINCIAL ESCUTCHEON

  

 

 

 

 

Yala

The escutcheon of Yala shows quarry-men mining for tin and points to the fact that this ore is the natural resource of the region and the main activity of its inhabitants. The chain of mountains in the background is Yalo mountain range, Yala being the name given by the local population in their dialect. Yalo for its part is derived from a specific rock formation found in this mountain range.
