The image of the “Lac Bird”, which appears on the ancient bronze drum of Vietnam (cir. 1000 BC), was believed to be associated with the one hundred tribes of the Lac Viet people. They were the refugees and immigrants who established a dominant culture in the Red River Delta, known as the great Dong-Son Culture.
Like our Lac-Viet ancestors, we - the United Vietnamese American Community of GA - continue our cultural heritage and identity as a community of resilience, innovation, and progress. We chose the “Lac Bird,” adorned with the flag of the Republic of Vietnam, to symbolize our unity and diversity as a Vietnamese American community.
UVAC stands for United Vietnamese American Community. The typography brings in modernity, clarity, and directness – which appeals to the characteristics of younger Vietnamese American generations . It is blended with the red-white-blue and star symbols of the flag of the United States, signifying a transition in to mainstream America.
We are committed to advancing a “United Vietnamese American Community of Georgia” in unity, service, and leadership. The Vietnamese translation is “Liên Hiệp Cộng Đồng Người Mỹ Gốc Việt Tiểu Bang Georgia.”
