     Province is called "Changwat" in Thai which change from "Muang" since King Rama VI. Thailand is devided into 75 provinces and special governed districts : the capital Bangkok, of which is also at a province level. So some Thai people count Bangkok as a province, making Thailand has 76 provinces.

     The seals of the provinces in Thailand are derived from the official seals of the provincial governors during the period of absolute monarchy and the seals on the scouts' standards during the fourteen cycles or the Monthon admistration in the reigns if King Rama VI and King Rama VII. In 1941, the government, under the preniership of Field Marshal of Fine Arts was responsible for designing the seal according to the wishes of each province.
