Happy United Nations Day!

United Nations Day (24 October) marks the entry into force in 1945 of the United Nations Charter. On 31 October 1947, the UN General Assembly, by resolution (168 ((II)), declared that the Day would be devoted to raising awareness of the goals and achievements of the Organization and gaining support for its work. In 1971, the Assembly recommended that UN Day be observed as a public holiday by all Member States (resolution 2782 (XXVI)).
