Description of the flag

According to the Thai Ministry of Interior in 2000, the flag of Chantha Buri province is red with a representation of the provincial seal (blue background, yellow moon, and white rabbit) in the middle of the flag, and the name in the province in yellow letters beneath the seal. The white rabbit is rather odd since it is black on the seal where it stands for the dark areas of the moon. The flag can be seen nowadays on the provincial website:
