This year marks the 35th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Argentina and Vietnam. The two countries celebrated this friendship by creating two stamps, one with the Vietnamese lotus and the other with the Argentine palo borracho flower. Each flower plays an important role in the identity of the respective countries. The lotus symbolizes the Vietnamese soul while the palo borracho flower represents Argentina’s beauty. The launching ceremony was held in collaboration with the Argentina ‘s National Postal Company (ANPC) and the Vietnamese Embassy. A sister ceremony took place in October and was hosted by the Vietnam Post and Telecommunications Corp.
