The Rajabhat logo was combined from the old logos of 36 Teacher Colleges to be a unified a single model. This logo is used to convey the meaning. It is easy to recognize from this impressive image and it shows the identity of each university.

Format of the Rajabhat Institute Logo

The format is related to His Majesty the King who established the Rajabhat Institutes. Moreover, the logo is neutral. It is related to location, environment and displays the name of Rajabhat Institute which was given by the King.



Colors of the Logo

There are 5 colors as the follows;

Blue represents the Royal Institute, which was the founder, and bestowed the name “Rajabhat Institute.”

Green represents the location of the 36 Rajabhat Institutes, which are situated in natural and attractive environments.

Gold represents intellectual progress.

Orange represents the prosperity of local art and culture.

White represents the pure thoughts of the scholars of His Majesty the King.

The development of the seal’s fonts
One of the King’s multifarious duties is improving national education plans. In the past, the educational system was developed from studying at home, temples, palaces and schools respectively, particularly when His Majesty the King was graciously pleased to establish the Training Teacher School for the first time. When there were some problems, the King always solved these with an intellectual solution intended to develop the country. The fonts are important components to put in the logo because Thai alphabets were adapted to have similar structure as the international system. Gothic Roman alphabets or old styles of English alphabets were presented in the logo for English words. Lanna and Khmer alphabets were combined with the Thai language to represent the contemporary communication and significance of the monarchy.    

The Form of Logo

His Majesty the King’s seal was graciously given to be on the logo of Rajabhat Universities. In the seal, there is a gold insignia with an orange edge decorated on a white umbrella of sovereignty. In the circle under the white umbrella of sovereignty, this used to be a wheel. Then this was changed to be a Thai painting in gold color on a green background together with the King’s signature. There is a golden edge to the circle that has a blue background with a white edge. There are 36 flames emanating from the circle inside the blue ellipse. On the top of the logo between the two ellipses is the specific name of each of the 36 Rajabhat Institutes in Thai, and on the bottom they are in English. The alphabet is in gold on a green background.
