Reflecting on the national history in the past XX century, the Vietnamese post office has issued a series of six stamps that reflect key moments in the life of this country. The first stamp is dedicated to the founding of the Communist Party of Vietnam on February 3, 1930. It depicts a red banner with a hammer and sickle and revolted peasants. The second stamp shows the birth of independent Vietnam, showing the first President of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, Ho Chi Minh, reading out the Declaration of Independence, residents of Hanoi protesting at the residence of the French Governor-General in August 1945, and voters participating in the first parliamentary elections in 1946.

The second half of the series focuses on the last decades of Vietnamese history. "Vietnam is being renewed" is the theme of the fourth stamp, which reflects the transformation that began in the country in 1986, when the VI Congress of the Communist Party of Vietnam was held. From this congress, Vietnam marks the beginning of the policy of "doi moi" ("renewal"), the essence of which is to allow the development of all socio-economic structures, including the private sector.
