The construction of a sovereignty flag pole on Hon La Island in Quang Dong commune, Quang Trach district was launched on June 23 by Quang Binh province’s Communist Youth Union.

The flag pole is one of seven to be built on outpost islands by the Ho Chi Minh Communist Youth Union’s Central Committee and the Vietnam Association of Students in collaboration with the Bank for the Investment and Development of Vietnam (BIDV).

Reaching 110 metres above sea level, the pole in Hon La will be the highest point on the island with an unobstructed view in all directions.

The construction is scheduled to be completed in August.

Other islands scheduled to build flag towers include Tran island in Quang Ninh province, Bach Long Vi in Hai Phong city, Phu Quy in Binh Thuan, Cu Lao Xanh in Binh Dinh, Con Son in Ba Ria Vung Tau and Tho Chu in Kien Giang./.
