Stamp collection marks Dien Bien Phu anniversary

The Ministry of Information and Communications and the People’s Committee of Dien Bien Province launched a stamp collection for the “Celebration of the 60th anniversary of Dien Bien Phu Historical Victory” on May 5.

The stamps, designed by painter To Minh Trang, depict the Dien Bien Phu Victory Statue and a blooming bauhinia (ban), a common flower in the northwestern region.

A photo exhibition titled “Dien Bien Phu – a 60-year immortal epic” with 120 pictures opened in Hanoi on May 5.

They were shot by Vietnam News Agency and other photographers who covered the Dien Bien Phu Campaign.

The display is divided into two parts -- the Dien Bien Phu Campaign and Dien Bien at Present.

The exhibition, on at the VNA head office at 5 Ly Thuong Kiet Street, will remain open until May 12.
