In this paper, we give a characterization of the structurally stable vector fields by making use of the notion of topological stability. More precisely, it is proved that the $C^1$ interior of the set of all topologically stable $C^1$ vector fields coincides with the set of all vector fields satisfying Axiom A and the strong transversality condition.
