The word "VÀNG", in Vietnamese, embodies several different meanings. The word "vàng" means gold, a precious and valuable element. The word "vẻ vang" means pride or to be proud of. The word "tiếng vang" denotes an accomplished individual who is recognized by many for his or her achievements. And "da vàng" is representative of the Vietnamese race, of the Vietnamese people's yellow skin color.
Collectively, "VÀNG" connotes a sense of pride in the accomplishments of the Vietnamese people and a desire to inspire present and future generations to continue to contribute to the great fabric of America, a place that has become a permanent home for many Vietnamese people.
