Abstract This article aims to explain the creation of Naga signs in the Poo Phayanak shrine at the 2nd Thai-Lao Friendship Bridge in Muang District, Mukdahan Province. This qualitative research collected data using in-depth interviews with 17 informants: sign creators and people receiving benefits from the creation at Poo Phayanak shrine. The data collected was analyzed using content analysis. The results showed that the Naga signs are created for denotative meanings or the denotative signified. It is mutually understood that the Naga is a giant serpent with a crest on its head, believed to have supernatural powers to transform into any form. Naga signs are also created to give connotative meanings. For some groups of people, the Nagas represent (1) fear, (2) the protectors of the Mekong River, (3) success, and (4) fortunes. The meanings that are communicated in the area play a major role in increasing faith in the community and among tourists, contributing to a rising number of tourists coming to visit the shrine in Mukdahan Province.
