These days, the streets and alleys of Hanoi are flooded with red flags to celebrate the 69th anniversary of the liberation of the capital.

Hanoians celebrate the 69th anniversary of Hanoi's liberation from the French on October 10, 1954, by decorating streets with red flags and banners.

The anniversary of Liberation Day has been an inspiration for generations of Hanoians, who commemorate the city's glorious and heroic victory every year.

October 10, 1954 marked an important turning point, opening a new glorious period in the history of Thang Long - Dong Do - Hanoi. The capital was utterly free from the yoke of colonialism. Since that day, the Vietnamese people gained freedom and began to build a new society, opening the era of socialist revolution in the nation.
