PROVINCIAL ESCUTCHEON

  

 

 

 

 

Yasothon

The escutcheon of Yasothon shows a chedi flanked by two lions and a lotus in the foreground. The lions (singh) refer to Ban Singh Tha, the old name of this city and the chedi is the one from Phrathat Anon(t), built in 675 AD. The lotus points to the fact that this city was once an amphur of Ubon Ratchathani which has a lotus (ubon) in its escutcheon, before becoming a provincial capital itself in 1972.
