The provincial seal shows a white rooster inside the entrance to the Phra That Lampang Luang temple. According to local legend, Buddha visited the province in his lifetime. The god Indra worried that the people would not get up by themselves to show respect to Buddha, and therefore woke them by transforming himself into a white rooster.


The provincial flower is the Heliconia ( Heliconia sp. ), and the provincial tree is the Indian Elm ( Holoptelea integrifolia ). According to the legend, this tree was planted in the temple during Buddha's visit.
