The logo was released at a ceremony in Ha Noi on January 24 to begin activities in celebration of the 45th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties and the 5th anniversary of the strategic partnership.

The second template was designed by the Elite Cultural Vietnam (ECV) office, highlighting the five-year-old strategic partnership using the two countries’ flags.

This is the fourth set of stamps issued by the Vietnamese Embassy in France and La Poste. The first set was released in 2008, featuring Vietnam’s Ha Long Bay and France’s Strait of Bonifacio – two UNESCO-recognised world heritage sites.

The second was about Alexandre Yersin, a French scientist who dedicated most of his life to Vietnam. It was lauched in 2013 on the occasion of his 150th birthday.

The third set was issued in 2015, featuring the Ha Noi Opera House, Truong Tien bridge in the central province of Thua Thien-Hue and Nha Rong port in Ho Chi Minh City – three French architectural works in the three regions of Vietnam.
