Wikipedia WWW, Dec 3, 2013 (Bắc Ninh Province and Bá̆c Giang Province were united as Ha Bac Province [in 1962]. However, the population growth resulted in Ha Bac being split into two new provinces, each based around one of the old province's two major settlements. The new Bắc Ninh Province was formed around the municipality of Bắc Ninh [in 1996], while the modern Bắc Giang Province encompasses Bắc Giang Municipality and most of the old Ha Bac Province's rural districts)
