Background:

The year 2021 will mark the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the diplomatic relations between Norway and Vietnam. Since 1971, the two countries have enjoyed thriving relations in different areas and in different settings, bilateral, regional and international. 2021 is also an important year as Norway and Vietnam are both sitting on the UN Security Council as non-permanent members.

To celebrate this important milestone, the Norwegian Embassy in Hanoi will launch a logo contest. The winner will be announced on 25 November 2020, the day of establishment of the Norway-Vietnam diplomatic ties. The winning logo will be used by the Norwegian Embassy as an official logo in the commemorative events in 2021.
