Description of the flag

There is no flag for Nakhon Sri Thammarat displayed in the Thai Ministry of Interior Regions and Provinces documents, only a badge.

The Thai Ministry of Interior in 2000 displayed no provincial flag for Nakhon Si Thammarat, only the seal. The provincial flag can be seen on the provincial website: Another image of the flag (picture of a real one) can be seen at It is purple over yellow with the provincial seal in the middle. On the photograph of the flag, the central part of the seal is green, with the name of the province in white, and the animals around are white on a transparent background. I send here an adaptation of the image which can be found on Cyber-flag where it is credited to Mello Luchtenberg.

Former flag : national flag with provincial seal in the center.
Description from
The seal of the province shows Phra Baromathat Chedi of the Wat Phra Mahathat Voramahavihan, one of the most important historical sites in southern Thailand. According to the city chronicle it was already built in 311, but archaeology dates it to the 13th century. The chedi is surrounded by the animals of the Chinese zodiac in the seal. The twelve animals represent the twelve Naksat cities or city-states which were tributary to the Nakhon Si Thammarat kingdom: the mouse of Saiburi; the ox of Pattani; the tiger of Kelantan; the rabbit of Pahang (actually a city in Pahang which is said to be submerged by a lake now); a large snake of Kedah; a small snake of Phatthalung; a horse of Trang; a goat of Chumphon; a monkey of Bantaysamer (might be Chaiya, or a town in Krabi Province); a cock of Sa-ulau (unidentified city, might be Songkhla, Kanchanadit or Pla Tha); a dog of Takua Pa and a pig of Kraburi.
