Phra Kiao

Phra Kiao

Phra Kiao ( _th. พระเกี้ยว), the Thai equivalent of the coronet, is a headgear traditionally worn by young princes and princesses. King Chulalongkorn adopted it as his personal emblem, as it coincided with the literal translation of his name.

When King Chulalongkorn founded the Royal Pages School, he granted permission for the Phra Kiao to be used as the School's cap badge and symbol. The School would later become Chulalongkorn University, which has since inherited and retained the symbol's use.

The symbol is also used by several schools historically associated with the University, namely:
* Triam Udom Suksa School
* Chulalongkorn University Demonstration School
* Horwang School
* Bodindecha (Sing Singhaseni) School
* Triamudomsuksa Pattanakarn School
* Triamudomsuksa Nomklao School
