ARCHITECTURE & ICONOGRAPHY

  

 

 

  insignia of Army Medical Department

 

Thailand

The insignia worn on the uniform of medical staff of the Royal Thai Army Medical Department (fig.) consists of a vajra-like torch entwined by two nagas (fig.), rather than the usual snakes as found in the Rod of Aesculapius.

 

This is consistent with the emblem of the Royal Thai Army Medical Department (fig.), as well as with the uniqueness of overall Thai iconography.
