The provincial flower is the Yellow Flamboyant ( Peltophorum pterocarpum ), and the provincial tree is the Millingtonia hortensis.


The provincial motto roughly translates to English as follows:


The marvellous Buddha Chinnarat, the birthplace of King Naresuan the Great , houseboats on the two banks of the Nan, delicious dried bananas, enchanting caves and waterfalls.


The province is sub divided in nine districts (  Amphoe ). These are further subdivided into 93 communes( Tambon ) and 993 Muban, which are administrative divisions at the village level.
