The royal emblem of King
Rama VI, who is known by the name
Wachirawut, consists of a
that emits a halo-like
of wachira thunderbolts
and which both are a reference to his name, as well as his power.
The wachira is placed on top of a double
phaan, i.e. a bowl or dish with a
base or foot (fig.),
and flanked by two multi-layered parasols known as
which are a symbol of kingship.
