Đồng Tháp Province’s emblem was chosen in 2007. It was designed by local artist Quang Trinh. The elements are lotus petals, a dancing crane, and a wreath of rice. The pink lotus is a symbol of Đồng Tháp, while the red-crowned crane is one of the rare birds protected by Tràm Chim National Park in Đồng Tháp. Vietnam has been deeply influenced by Chinese culture, and although there are few red-crowned crane tracks in the country, the bird is frequently praised in literary and artistic works. The people regard the bird as a symbol of auspiciousness. In the emblem, the shape of the lotus petals represents upward development, while the wreath of rice indicates that Đồng Tháp is a major rice-producing province.
