NDO - The central province of Phu Yen held a New Year flag salutation ceremony on January 1 at the Dien Cape, the easternmost mainland point of Vietnam.

The annual ceremony was attended by 300 members of the armed forces, the general public and tourists.

Under the national flag, the participants sung the national anthem, which pleasantly blended with the sounds of crashing waves and winds echoing from the sea to create a sacred and solemn atmosphere, all while expressing their belief in a bright future of Vietnam.

Dang Le Anh Tuan, a tourist from Vinh Long province, said it was his first time attending and taking part in the flag ceremony and that he was truly moved and proud.

According to Phu Yen Vice Chairman Phan Dinh Phung, the flag salutation ceremony on New Year Day aims to provoke patriotism and aspirations to make the province and Vietnam in general grow further.

In addition to the flag salutation ceremony, Phu Yen province also presented gifts to the first visitors to the Dien Cape and Mon Beach, a national scenic spot.

Last year the province, renowned for its pristine coastal landscape, welcomed 1.8 million visitors.
