The flag with a large star in the center and 4 small stars around it is the flag of the Communist state of China. The big star represents the Han people, the 4 small stars represent the small ethnic groups subjugated by the Han people. Even in the flag, the Chinese Communist Party considers their Han ethnic group as king, that is to say, they underestimate what is not Han.
Associating with an imperialist government like the Chinese Communist Party is a danger to the nation. Vietnam has lost Ban Gioc Waterfall, the Hoang Sa (Paracels) and part of the Truong Sa (Spratlys). Vietnam has lost a lot of other things since the Communist Party of Vietnam and the Communist Party of China became brothers, never calling each other allies or partners. Making brothers is unequal, China always considers them as the elder brother. Therefore, in 1979, they sent more than half a million troops across the northern border, slaughtering Vietnamese civilians, in order to rob our country.
Since the 1990 Chengdu Conference, the Communist Party of Vietnam begged for a return to relations with the Communist Party of China, and since then, the country has suffered further losses. The 1999 Border Agreement was signed by two parties on top of the nation, causing the border to have to be redrawn. Ban Gioc Waterfall has been lost since then. In addition, in 2000, the Agreement on the Partition of the Gulf of Tonkin narrowed Vietnam’s territorial waters. Those are steps backwards.
On December 21, 2011, Mr. Xi Jinping, then Vice President of China, visited Vietnam. At that time, everyone knew that Mr. Xi would be the General Secretary and President of the country to replace Mr. Hu Jintao at the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China. During that visit, Mr. Nguyen Phu Trong welcomed him with Chinese flags with up to 6 stars. Everyone knows that the official flag of the People’s Republic of China has only 5 stars. A small star is added there, which is implied to represent the Vietnamese nation. This is not a joke.
After that time, on VTV and other programs, a 6-star flag appeared. In addition, in the textbook of spelling books for preschool children, there is also a Chinese flag with six stars. In general, a lot of repetition of this cannot be called “wrong.”
On December 20, the social network Facebook appeared an image of a panel of the Hanoi University of Business and Technology, causing a stir in public opinion. Specifically, the background above shows the name of Hanoi University of Business and Technology, below is the Faculty of Education, National Defense and Security to celebrate the 78th anniversary of the founding of the Vietnam People’s Army (December 22, 1944–December 22, 2022); 33 years of the National Defense Association (December 22, 1989 – December 22, 2022); 50 years of Victory over Hanoi-Dien Bien Phu in the air (12/1972 – 12/2022). However, in the upper left corner of the background, the background is the Chinese national flag.
Before the storm of public opinion, the representative of the school told the domestic press, the place to hang the above poster is the campus of 2 Hanoi University of Business and Technology, located in Tu Son, Bac Ninh province. Through initial verification, one person from the Faculty of Education, National Defense and Security, and one person from the Administration Department printed this poster. The incident was captured by students and posted on social media. It is known that the Rector of Hanoi University of Business and Technology has issued a decision to suspend the work of these two officials.
Someone must be scapegoats. The stealthy use of the 6-star flag, the inclusion of the Chinese flag in government activities, and even the use of maps with China’s nine-dotted line in the South China Sea (Vietnam calls it the East Sea), are not sole cases. There can be no mistake when the same thing repeats itself from year to year.
What is the Communist Party’s foreign policy, how can it be hidden from the people? What does Vietnam lose from the ruling Communist Party’s “golden friend” cannot be hidden from the people! Therefore, it is difficult for anyone to believe that it is just a “mistake.”
