The logo of the Royal Thai Army, at the entrance of its Headquarters in Bangkok. It appears also on the flag of the Army (fig.) and consists the Phra Maha Phichai Mongkut, a chadah-like crown (fig.) with light beams coming from the pinnacle, placed over a chakra, which refers to the Chakri Dynasty (fig.). In between the royal crown and the chakra is a pathum unnahlohm (fig.). Underneath the crown are some ribbons that flank the the chakra disc, beneath which are some laurel leaves tied together in the middle by another ribbon.
