United Nations Day

United Nations Day (UN Day) marks the anniversary of the founding of the United Nations on October 24, 1945, the date that the United Nations Charter had been ratified by representatives from all of the original 51 Member States, including China, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom, and the United States. UN Day was established in 1948 not only to celebrate this anniversary but to celebrate and reflect on the continuous work and accomplishments of the UN.
