Recognize UN History and Celebrate United Nations Day

Celebrate the establishment of the UN on United Nations Day!

As one of the most recognized international governing bodies, the United Nations is a symbol of global collaboration. We respect and appreciate the work the UN has accomplished. We’d like to invite you to join us as we honor the UN on United Nations Day and check out these facts about the UN.

  • The UN was established in 1945 as an international governing body. Its establishment came after the dismantlement of the League of Nations in an effort to prevent another world war.
  • The UN serves various purposes around the globe. From advocating for human rights across our planet, to providing humanitarian aid around the world for a variety of disasters, the UN helps to perpetuate world peace.
  • Let’s do our part to celebrate United Nations Day by learning more about the organization and enjoying our freedoms.
  • October 24th has been celebrated as United Nations Day since 1948.  In 1971, the United Nations General Assembly recommended that the day be observed by Member States as a public holiday.
  • UN Day Concert –  On October 23rd, in the United Nations General Assembly Hall there will be a concert to celebrate and reflect on the work of the UN through the universal language of music, featuring Korean Traditional Music Orchestra, Lang Lang, world famous Harlem Gospel Choir, and more.
  • Turn the World UN Blue – On October 24th, iconic monuments, buildings, statues, bridges, and other landmarks across the world will be lit up blue to help unite global citizens and promote the message of peace, development and human rights.
  • Art Installation “Enlightened Universe” – October 24th, Manhattan, New York.
    Renowned artist, Cristobal Gabarron, will unveil his monument in New York’s Central Park. The monument is an interactive sculpture formed by a sphere and surrounded by a spiral of 70 figures – one for each of the 70 years since the UN was created. Visit the UN70 Website for detailed information about other upcoming activities in New York and around the world.
