Fishermen in the south central coastal province of Phu Yen received 16,000 national flags and 5,000 portraits of President Hồ Chí Minh during a ceremony held on January 19.

The ceremony, titled “For the Fatherland’s sea and island sovereignty”, was jointly organised by the Border Guard High Command, provincial People’s Committee and Vietnam Joint Stock Commercial Bank for Industry and Trade (VietinBank).

Speaking at the event, Secretary of the provincial Party Committee Phạm Đại Dương affirmed that over the past years, Phu Yen’s fishermen have played a pioneer role in protecting the country’s sea and island sovereignty and contributed to maintaining security and order at sea.

Vietnamese fishing ships carrying the national flags are “live markers” asserting the national sea and island sovereignty, he added.
