Symbols of Vietnam culture throughout history


      For Vietnamese, rice means much more than a type of staple. It has played an important role in the evolution of society and economies. The development of the rice fields always coincides with the development of the nation. It will not be overstated to assert that rice is the most influential factor in Vietnamese traditional culture and a driving force for history. Rice is the most popular grain, which cannot be absent in any Vietnamese meals. Also, it feeds the population and contains a hidden beauty that can beautify the already elegant Vietnamese culture. Although many rice fields recently have been transformed into industrial zones, it remains an indispensable element in the images of the Vietnamese traditional villages and culture. It can be said that rice is an official symbol in Vietnam culture.
