In this paper, (weak) vector equilibrium principle with capacity constraints is introduced. A necessary condition that a vector minimum cost flow is a vector equilibrium flow with capacity constraints is obtained. When the number of paths connecting with each pair of source and sink is less than or equal to 2, a sufficient condition for a vector minimum cost flow to be a vector equilibrium flow is also obtained. A generalized (weak) vector equilibrium principle is also introduced. Without any additional assumption, a necessary and sufficient condition for a (weak) vector minimum cost flow to be a generalized (weak) vector equilibrium flow is obtained.
