The Arms of Edward Thiravej Ploysongsang

The Armiger has two other entries in the register:

South Africa: The International Register of Arms, 12th March 2006. Registration Number No.00037.

Spain: The International Register of Arms, 11th August 2016. Registration Number No.0394 (Vol.3). 

The English version of the armiger's coat of arms is based on a previous design registered with the Bureau of Heraldry of the Republic of South Africa. For the English arms, the armiger replaced the three drops of water in chief with three fountains, added a crown radiant and a single pointed vajra to the arms to better tie in with the English badge, and had the artist exemplify the previous Latin motto, Affulgeo, in English to reflect his preference for plain English in his work as an attorney.

The armiger changed the three drops of water to three fountains because he learned his family descends agnatically from Zhu Xi, Duke of Hui during the Song Dynasty and can claim distant genealogical connections with Confucius and Yan Hui. These three individuals are major saints of Confucianism, a philosophical system represented by the Chinese character for water. The fountains retain the water imagery of the South African arms and represent knowledge in Western symbolism, i.e., the fountain or font of knowledge.

The English badge refers to the Ploysongsang surname. In Indic mythology, which greatly influenced Thai culture, the vajra or thunderbolt is also described as a jewel. Together, the crown radiant and the vajra jewel symbolize the armiger's surname, which means "radiant jewel". These same elements are in the arms as well to better tie the badge to the arms, though now with the crown symbolizing level-headed, spoken authority and the vajra representing action.

The armiger obtained his honorary grant of arms through the College of Arms to fulfill a life-long ambition to honour his family, and because he wished to officially exercise his heraldic privileges now as an Officer in the U.S. Priory of the Most Venerable Order of the Hospital of St. John of Jerusalem per the Statutes and Regulations of that British royal order of chivalry. The armiger will continue using his original arms, crest, badge and standard in South Africa, Spain and other jurisdictions where previously registered. He will use his English devices in all other jurisdictions and new organizations moving forward.

The armiger's background information from his previous entries remains unchanged. As far as he knows, the armiger is the first person of Thai descent to receive a grant of honorary arms from the College of Arms in his own right.
