One hundred photos featuring the vitality of life on Truong Sa (Spratly) Archipelago were introduced to the public at an exhibition in the Central Highlands province of Lam Dong last week.

The photo exhibition “Truong Sa Vitality” was jointly organized by the Vietnam Youth Museum, Lam Dong newspaper, Lam Dong Province’s government, the Youth Club for the Homeland’s Sea and Islands, and the National Archives Center IV at the Children’s House of Lam Dong Province in Dalat City, news website Vietnamplus reports.

Taken by reporters and photographers, both amateur and professional, that had visited or worked on Truong Sa Archipelago, the photos reflect the life of Vietnamese naval soldiers and people on the islands as well as the natural beauty of Truong Sa’s waters and landscapes. They were categorized into three basic themes, including Vietnam’s sea and island sovereignty, the portrait of Truong Sa, and youth for national sea and islands.

In addition to the artworks, the exhibition also displayed 33 national flags transferred from 33 military bases on Truong Sa Archipelago, 15 national flags from 15 DK1 platforms in the southern continental shelf, and four national flags from the ships performing duties in the Vietnamese waters.

A number of woodblocks from the Nguyen Dynasty which were used to print publications on Truong Sa were also on display.

“During our trip to Truong Sa late last year, we witnessed Tropical Storm Tembin sweeping through the islands and causing huge damages. However, the islands quickly recovered after the storm, inspiring us to hold photo exhibitions on Truong Sa’s vitality,” said Tran Vu Thanh, head of the Youth Club for the Homeland’s Sea and Islands.

The event is part of a series of exhibitions held at six venues in Hanoi, Hung Yen and Lam Dong from March 9 to April 22.  It aims to raise public awareness of and a sense of responsibility among the younger generation in protecting Vietnam’s sovereignty over its sea and islands as well as using marine resources in an effective and sustainable manner.
